Art in autism

So tonight I’m going to post a poem that while I’m late to the story, is a beautiful poem written by a young man with autism. The story starts with a poetry assignment at school and ends up with an amazing gift for us all. The story, where I found it, is entitled “Benjamin, Boy on the Autism Spectrum, Writes Poem Called ‘I Am’” over at The Mighty. I’ll leave it at that.

Sincerely-

Autism art

Tonight I thought I would post a piece of my son’s artwork from his Graphic Design class that he’s taking this semester. I would say that his decision to take this class was a bit of a surprise but that said, he’s done well in really all of his school work and this class is just another example of that. It’s a quote from Winston Churchill:
