Human Interest News News By State

May 19, 2016- "The Nonspeaking Teenager Wrote an Incredibly Profound Letter Explaining Autism"- Non-verbal teenager Gordy Baylinson’s letter “is not a cry for pity,” but instead “a cry for attention, recognition, and acceptance.” Gordy’s emotional prose is a recent revelation as he has only been exposed to Rapid Prompting Method, a relatively new communication technique developed for people with severe autism, since February of 2015. Through this new communicative tool, Gordy’s parents are learning things about their son that have been locked away until recently. In addition to Gordy’s entire letter, readers are treated to an interview with him as well within this article.
