Hi, I’m Ezra
I am a happy boy. I’m six years old. I have a really sharp memory. If you tell me your name once, I’ll always remember. I also love numbers. I mean love, love numbers! I like memorizing people’s house numbers just for fun. I really like letters and numbers. I’ve been able to read and count since I was two and a half years old. I’m really fascinated by elevators and all doors. How awesome are they? The doors just open and close at the push of a button, and at the push of another button they ride up and down without any work on my part. If it was up to me I would just ride up and down elevators all day. Right now I’m really into Duplo Lego. I love building things and taking them apart again. Airplanes are cool, and definitely Disney Pixar animation movies. Just like my dad anything electronic fascinates me. I love cooking, and helping in the kitchen. I have a very good feeling about people, and can tell what kind of person you are. I’m so happy and enthusiastic that I think we’ll get along, even if it is difficult for me to talk.
I have some challenges with communicating (see the videos). I really want to have friends, but I don’t always know how to get your attention. Sometimes I don’t get what you’re saying. It’s hard for me to get my muscles to work right so they can say the things I’m thinking. And whenever I’m happy or excited my body just wants to run away with me, or contort. I like to make noises. Noise is fun. I get a good feeling when people make noises for me. My mom tells me that I’m hyper a lot. I also have ADHD, whatever that means! I do know that mom doesn’t give me any candy because of it! I have to run and jump a lot to keep my body happy, and to make sure my legs are there when I can’t see them, so don’t be offended if I don’t sit down next to you for more than 10 seconds. It’s not that I don’t like you, it’s just that I can’t help it yet.
OK, so it’s true that I can get really mad sometimes. It’s hard for me when I don’t know what will happen. That’s why I like to count, and say your name over and over, or quote my favorite Disney movies, because it’s always the same. It makes sense to me, and helps me find order.
Thank you so much for being a part of my life, and being patient with me, and believing in me.
