    There is a segment on autism that looks very interesting. A 14 year old girl was unable to speak until she began typing on a computer. To hear her thoughts is truly amazing. You will never again think of an autistic person in the same way.

    I missed it! I'll have to see if I can find the segment online.

    I saw the last 10minutes. It's so hopeful. To see her behave and her demeanor makes it's shocking to read her writing. She is very articulate and deep.

    I have read another article of a boy in India who his mother painstakingly taught to write. He is also very articulate.

    Makes you wonder how much we don't know.
