Jamie Ponsoby, now 13, was diagnosed with autism at 2 and a half. His speech gradually disappeared and he had difficulty with sign language. His mom read about a person who found it easier to communicate by typing rather than talking and decided to teach Jamie to type. Now being able to communicate, Jamie has proven to his family that he is aware, has a sense of humor, above-average emotional skills, and has a gift for poetry.

Here is an extract from his first poem:

Do you know the real world of autism

Do you know how it feels to be autistic

Do you know what it means to be autistic

Go to my world, you will see

Go to my world, you will know

Go to my world, you will hear

Go to my world, you will feel it

Go to my world, you will detect

Go to my world, you will find out

Go to my world, you will discover
