Try Not to Cry at This Sweet Report Card a Dad Made for His Autistic Daughter

Sometimes no matter how hard you study, the grades you want or need are just beyond your reach. This fact is particularly hard to swallow when the reason is something you have no control over, such as a disability.

10-year-old Sophie Jackson, who has autism, felt she’d let everyone down when she received a report card filled with D grades. Fortunately, her dad Shane Jackson was there to make sure his daughter knows how proud he is, no matter what a piece of paper from her school says.

To prove to Sophie that there is more to life than grades, Shane made her a new report card featuring everything that makes her special, including items such as “funny” and “imagination.” Of course, she got all As.

Unsurprisingly, Shane’s heartfelt gesture has gone viral on Twitter, and as of writing has been retweeted more than 12,000 times. Not to mention the thread is filled with tons of sweet responses from followers around the web who were touched by the story.

Some parents have even considered taking this approach with their own children

Shane has also created an account to showcase Sophie’s artwork called “SophieSideWaysSmile,” and we have to say, we think he’s got a budding talent on his hands.

Sophie has also made her dad his own report card, and it’ll definitely make you giggle.

Looks like he only got a C in wrestling though. Oh dear…
