Autistic Girl’s New Report Card Accounts for Much More Than Academics
Shane Jackson, who lives with his family in Australia, is being praised across the globe for his heartwarming response after his daughter brought home a report card filled with Ds.
Jackson’s daughter Sophie, who has autism, came home crying about the bad grades saying “I’ve let everyone down.” Shane, who knew his daughter had a difficult year despite great efforts, decided to take matters into his own hands. He drafted her a new version called “Dad’s Report Card”.
The charming paper gives Sophie top scores for a variety of her most important and unique qualities. She received As for being funny, loving dogs, fighting with the boys and for drawing and mailing robots. A+s were awarded for imagination and, most importantly, for being the best daughter ever.
Not surprisingly, Twitter went wild with love and respect for thoughtful Dad. But it wasn’t only strangers that appreciated the new report card!
Sophie decided to give her Dad his own grades, too!
What a sweet pair!
