Boy Invents Game To Help Sister With Autism
[Source: Disability Scoop]
Ten-year-old Kusa Xiong has looked out for his big sister for as long as he can remember.
At school, he helps her unpack her things at her locker. At home, the siblings read together, make up games and practice counting.
Kusa said 12-year-old Pahnuly, who has autism, inspires him to think differently. It was because of her, after all, that inspiration struck the kid inventor one day at home in Brooklyn Park while the family played pingpong — a sport Pahnuly struggled with. Kusa wanted to find a way to make pingpong more suited to his sister’s needs.
