Lessons from The Princess Bride for Parents w/ Kiddos on the Spectrum

Lessons from The Princess Bride for Parents w/ Kiddos on the Spectrum

I’ll be honest, I had never heard about the movie “The Princess Bride” until I got to BYU.  It seemed that every Friday, there was a movie theater, campus or auditorium that had a “Princess Bride” feature.  It was seriously one of the most popular date sites on campus and you could count on one or two people quoting THE ENTIRE MOVIE!

Fast forward what, 20 yrs and I now have a wife who LOVES (and can quote) the movie  . . . . . . though she DOESN’T love BYU.  Anyway, it was a matter of time that someone came up with a Princess Bride and Autism connection.  Click on the pic or link up top to see the article!  Fun stuff!

    As a fan of the movie as well as a former special education teacher, this is an excellent article that can apply to everyone.

  2. This was brilliant!!! Thanks for posting. I can’t wait to share it with my family, especially my autistic sister. We all love this movie and I know they’ll enjoy the references. 🙂

    • Thanks! My wife found it last night and was giggling as she was reading it. . . . . funny though how a lot of it really ‘makes sense’ 🙂

  3. Hey there! I’m Bec, the author of the Princess Bride piece. Thank for sharing, I’m so glad to hear you guys enjoyed it!

    • Hey Bec, it’s a great piece! I mentioned in my post that my wife is from Utah and being that I went to BYU, we are VERY FAMILIAR with the movie. . . . think it might be a daddy / daughter movie this weekend. 🙂

      What a creative idea – thanks for posting!
