I bet you sang the title of this post didn’t you? I know I did as I typed it. This is a quick post about an unexpected hero that rescued me in a therapy session today.  And yes it was Batman along with his trusted sidekick Robin with a Ninja Turtle in a supporting role.


“C” is a kindergartener in one of the autism classrooms in my school. He is speaks Spanish and English with an autism dialect.  He loves Ironman.  He hates getting his picture taken, well maybe it’s just hard for us to take a picture of a constant moving mini superhero who guards his identity.  I see him with the occupational therapist and 2 sidekicks in our motor room once a week.  It’s a great place to practice our superhero moves.  Due to the demands put on a superhero it was easier for me to transition to his superhero hideout for a second meeting.

Recently we have rendezvoused in the hallway after he has been returning from one of his many crime fighting adventures. So his main partner thought we should try meeting in my room to conduct our continued alliance.  The first meeting went well and progress was made on our plan. But at our next meeting this mini superhero thought there might be villains in our designated meeting room.  We reassured him that Batman and Robin were already in place and had cleared out all evil nemeses.  Feeling that the area was secure our mini superhero moved into our meeting room.


We moved to the table to plot out our next adventure along with Batman, Robin and a Ninja Turtle. The case was daunting and our mini superhero was reluctant to discuss it. Batman and Robin convinced “C”  that he had the powers to complete the mission.  Our mini superhero agreed to collaborate and the results were successful.

1.  Robin laid out the plan and one of the Ninja Turtles agreed that it was one of the “biggest” ones they had tackled.


2. Our mini superhero was ready to discuss the “full” plan on his own:


3. Our mini superhero cleaned up all the “littlest” details.


Now it’s your turn to share your own twist on how an unexpected superhero rescued one of your therapy sessions.
