In brief: Some

It is crucial for parents of autism spectrum children to seek out the unique and creative ways their children express themselves.
At the same time, it is very important not to burden oneself and one's child with expectations that may not be fulfilled. All children (and adults) have natural inclinations and flourish best when those inclinations are seen, acknowledged and nurtured.
