Understanding That Everyone Has Feelings

Carly Fleischmann is a 14 year old girl who is severely autistic. Through typing she is able to communicate very well, and is unlocking the mysteries of autism. She writes about her frustrations of not being able to communicate, and not being able to go to school like "normal" kids. It is a good reminder that everybody has feelings and we should never treat anyone like they are "lesser" just because they are not able to express themself like we think they should.

You can view some of her writings here:
