Friends Make the World Autastic!

Hello Everyone!

I am excited to share with you a video of my incredible, powerful fellow speller, Autastic Tom!  My Mom and I met him in the summer at a conference for spellers. He so inspires me in this video: (Autastic Tom’s Video).  He types on the iPad and then reads his own words out loud

I am working on this too! I was so impressed with Tom’s intelligent and well-made video. It shows that people like Tom and I can not only learn to spell to communicate, but can also master other skills. I am sure to continue making my own speech more clear and purposeful.

    Ian, I was THRILLED to find your blog today. I don’t know if you remember me, but I sure remember you! I worked with you for about 4 months in 2007 when you were just a little boy, when you lived in Arizona. I loved getting to know you and have thought about you over the years, wondering how you and your family are doing. When I read your blog today, I was so touched by your openness and how beautifully you express your thoughts! Your blog posts, every single one of them, just made me so happy! What a gift you have, and I hope you continue to write. Thank you and your mom for starting this post. It’s one I look forward to following.
    Take care!
