After failing his driving test a couple of times R.J. returns with his father and autism therapist, Mr. Lee, for support. This time he finally passes the driving test and he is able to get behind the wheel. This time he was administered a test that was specific for people with specific needs that his parents where not aware of that the DMV had.
His father says “R.J., you know, he’s checking off all of those ‘nevers,’” he says. “He’s got a job, now he’s going to be driving. He just never ceases to amaze me and Holly and the rest of the family and the rest of the people around him.”
