An autistic teen who can’t speak, wrote a book about what its like to be autistic. It is opening eyes about what kids with Autism are thinking, feeling, and capable of.
Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:
This is why I love iPads so much. I think it opens up whole new worlds not only for non-verbal autistics like the boy in this story, but also those who are verbal, like my high-functioning son. I still believe that tablets–especially iPads–are still the tools that will help the most with aiding special needs kids communicate and participate in society.
