We also had a DVD, Billy Grows Up and our 12 year old son has watched that so many times I have lost count. He has got his own basket with all his boy stuff in it that is needed for this time in his life. Wonderful tools to read and watch if you are parent(s) and going through this journey with a boy with special needs. (Referring to the book Special Boy's business borrowed at the same time.)
