What is it really like to be autistic?
On February 25, 2010, a sixth grader at Congress Park gave this speech to his small accelerated LA class of 11 students (including himself and his sister). After those nine people were significantly impacted by his revelation, he and his teacher, explained the Autism spectrum and his struggles to each of the 6th grade classrooms at Congress Park, using the attached PowerPoint they prepared. He gave his speech at the March 11, 2010 Board of Education meeting; the mp3 is attached. Also, he was featured in THE DOINGS newspaper on March 25, 2010.
