On this day, July 16th, way back in 2013, I went down to UTSA’s Autism Research Center to assist with a study on reinforcing listening behavior in children with autism. I had to talk to all of the kids, one-on-one, tell them a little about myself, and then immediately afterward, another grad student would ask the kids questions about me (“Who was that?”), to see how much they remembered.
When asked, “what else can you tell me about her?” one of the kids replied, “She was good.”
“Oh?” the grad student asked him. “She was a good person? You could tell?”
“Yes,” he replied.
