Shane, the father of a 10 year old girl named Sophie who has autism spectrum disorder cheered her up in the cutest way possible.
People all around the world are gradually understanding that mere text book knowledge and a restricted education system does not define a person’s intelligence. But even after all the debates and realizations, there are little to no changes that are brought into the education industry.
Nevertheless, fathers like Shane Jackson of Tasmania, give us hope that parents are being more receptive towards the idea. Shane is the father of a 10 year old girl named Sophie who has autism spectrum disorder.
Sophie is a very creative and bright girl. However, she got straight Ds in her report card, due to her condition. She was distraught by this and thought she had let everyone down. But being the amazing father that he is, Shane found a way to cheer his little one up. He created a new report card where all the things that really mattered were listed and Sophie passed with flying colors.
Have a look!

Thanks Shane. You just gave me the solution to my year 6 son's reports. So proud of him, at this moment he is on stage, in combined schools band. Band playing in a night of local High School school performing Arts.I drew the short straw, had to stay home and look after twins.

Every little thing counts, keep up the progressive thinking! It might not change the blinkered approach of mainstream but it works wonders on our children with ASD😊😎

You sir made me cry. Your handwriting looks identical to my father's who has been gone for almost 9 years … He once too gave me something like this …

With my student’s permission to post, show her this report from his school in 1964 . He has dyslexia and other SPLd . He is just graduating with an excellent 2:2 and is now a Bachelor of Laws. Note the “lazy” comments when actually, just an undiagnosed cognitive processing issue. pic.twitter.com/4QM4spNHcl
