For this week's post, I thought I'd answer a previous Q&A that I had received a couple months ago, regarding how Michael makes friends. As I've mentioned in previous posts, for the most part Michael is always a sweetheart. Whenever someone waves and says "Hi Michael!" he will always wave back, and if he's in a good mood he'll even shoot you a little smile too :)
Ever since Michael started high school, whenever someone gives him a high-five he'll also have to give them a little fist-bump. One of the student aids taught him and its stuck with him ever since. As for how he interacts with students, he doesn't have too many issues with sitting next to the other students. He usually won't initiate sitting next to other students, and will just let them sit next to him instead. Once it starts getting too noisy or if someone starts bugging Michael too much, that's when he'll start getting upset. He'll start making a lot of wincing faces, pull his own hair, or even push that person away.
As for girls, Michael does get crushes sometimes too! I'll never forget when Michael had a crush on one of the other students back in High School. He would always sit next to her, smile to her, and never look away. It was the sweetest thing! Like Michael, she also couldn't talk and was limited to a wheel chair as well, but she was such a sweetheart and accepted Michael's companionship.
That's it for this week's post! If you ever have any questions, feel free to submit a contact form or comment below :)
