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-

Autismtry (autism + poetry)

Okay, so I made up that word. It’s a combination of autism and poetry. Anyway, I found this poem over at Autism speaks. It has no title but I think (and hope) it’s how my daughter feels about her brother. When I see her again later this week, I think I’ll read it to her.

Sincerely-
