Description

Isaac, 16, interviews his maternal grandfather at thanksgiving. Isaac, who has ASD and is keenly interested in things mechanical, asks Richard about his career, service in the Coast Guard, and whether he ever felt "different" as a person who most likely also has ASD. Richard is recovering from a stroke, which makes recalling words difficult, and Isaac's ASD can make spontaneous communication a challenge, but they share many common interests and are both uncommonly bright & inventive-- two peas in a pod!
