Sophie has autism. School is very difficult for her. She tries hard. She puts hours into her homework. So when Sophie brought home a report card with all D’s she burst into tears thinking that she had not only failed, but let down her family. That’s when her dad, Shane, took action. Shane made Sophie a new report card: Dad’s report card. Take a look:
My daughter who has ASD received straights Ds on her report today. She cried and said “I’ve let everyone down” this is my report card for her. pic.twitter.com/godh2iiQ88

Even the The National Autistic Society checked in saying they wholeheartedly approved.
And Sophie? She was thrilled. She even made her own report card. One for her dad. He scored A’s in every category except being funny. In that one he got a B. But, he got an A+ in Being The Best Dad Ever. We agree!
