Learning to Lie

I know it's a stereotype that autistic children or autistic people can't lie. I know it's not true for many people. However, until recently, it was true for my autistic child. I could always count on him to tell the truth. The absolute, complete, sometimes brutal, truth.

Lately, he's been telling stories. Not direct lies to direct questions. More like he'll be telling me about his day and as he gets furthur into the story I become suspicious. Surely a teacher would have done something in x situation. No, he says, she did nothing. By the time he's flying away in an airplane I've caught on. He's embellished just a bit.

Anyway, we discussed it and he's agreed to start a story that's untrue with "I want to tell you a story."

Still not direct lie to a direct question. But I'm seeing a glimmer there and I have no doubt it will one day come.

The "yeah we made another milestone" and the "shhhiiiittteeee I have to discipline it now".
