We've never taken her to the movies because of her auditory sensitivity, her lack of patience, her apparent inability to sit still for that long, and her distaste of crowds; in short, sensory overload. So, at 11, she saw her first movie, and it was about Ernie Davis, the first black Heisman Trophy winner. My little girl's first movie in a theater was about football and civil rights. And according to her teacher, she "was WONDERFUL! No problems at all, in fact I think she really enjoyed herself." Of course this was a field trip with her class, she had her own popcorn to munch, and fidgits that her teacher brought along for emergencies. If we tried to take her to a movie, it may be another story entirely... but it's a start. I worried for nothing, and frankly, I'm glad. I didn't want her to have a bad time, I just didn't want to be the one in charge if she did. *smile* I have had more than enough of those experiences, thanks.
