Autism often leaves young men and women with profound thoughts but without the ability to share it or the audience to listen.
Philip Reyes, 12 years old, is our youngest author to date and is autistic. His autism prevents him from communicating verbally, and until recently this meant the world of his thoughts, brilliant and profound as they are, were hidden behind his silence. New technology has allowed him, however, to discover his voice in the written word. In this article Philip and his mother share with Valor Parent’s how you can encourage your sons to engage young men like Philip, just as in need of friendship, and with a lot to offer anyone who is willing to take the time to listen.
