Growing up is hard work, but its even harder if youre one of the millions of children with an autism spectrum disorder or a similar condition that can delay developmental milestones. Grayson, a 7-year-old child, is one of those children, but hes not letting it get in the way of leading a happy, rewarding life with his parents.
This is 7-year-old Grayson. According to his mom, Ash (@Abkjames1 on Twitter), Grayson has autism and ADHD and he recently learned how to use buttons and zippers as part of his occupational therapy.
Ash shared some touching text messages Grayson sent to his father after learning to dress himself. He snapped a pretty dapper looking selfie and sent it to his dad along with the message I got dressed all by myself.
You did a great job buddy, his father replied. Thanks bud, Grayson wrote back.
Graysons wholesome exchange with his pops went viral and it was almost too pure for people to handle.

Everyone on Twitter loves you, his mom told him. Great! a beaming Grayson replied. Do you know what Twitter is? she asked. No, Grayson said.
He may not know Twitter, but Twitter knows him and theyre all very proud of him. So are we.
