Paper has done the hard work of hearing the thoughts inside the heads of many great writers.  My needs grow all the time.  I'm a teenager now and I'm sort of thinking about what I'm going to do with my life.  Have been thinking about using my writing to help others with autism.  

When I was little, my parents didn't think I would offer much to the world.  Mom and Dad thought all I could do was lay around and play on my iPad, making me nothing more than the furniture.  Our make many candy trips and dvd purchases was all they knew to do to make me happy.  There is something they didn't know.  I've always made it my priority to get educated.

The main thing I'm using this year small years ago didn't exist.  I'm talking about pointing and spelling with lots of different people at school.  People think it's impossible for autistics to use RPM, particularly with looking to spell with lots of people.  I'm proof it's possible.  When I'm in Mr. Barkley's class, I'm able to because everyone believes in me.  This makes me not uncomfortable.  Love some of my other classes too.  My teachers are meeting the challenge of including me.  Might make my life lately almost perfect.  My classmates this year have also made pointing easy.  They are paying me nice compliments.

My friend is learning his way around high school.  I will be there next year.  I'm excited for my possibilities, but I'm going to miss my teachers at Heim so much!  Maybe people in high school will be great also.  Now learning is so easy because I have such great people supporting me.  High school might take awhile to adjust to.  Maybe you didn't like school, but to me it is my lifeline.  Learning makes me feel so happy because I went so many years learning the same things over and over.  Now I have the chance to graduate and go to college someday.   Who knows, I might even be homecoming queen!

This month you won't believe all the great things happening.  Don't you want to hear about what has been happening?  My mom and her friends Lisa and Laurie made the first presentation on RPM to a big group of parents.  Learned so much about my life story from Mom's viewpoint.  Made me another inspiring story like Ido and Tito.  You think having sheets of paper is all you need to give a good presentation, but what you really need is to be passionate about what you're talking about.  They right away caught everyone's attention by having me spell a welcome.  It was wonderful showing people what is possible.  Meeting people interested in RPM makes me feel like I'm working for Mom's proud new non-profit, Buffalo RPM.  I'm glad to be helping other autistics change their lives.

Lately I've been trying lots of new things.  Point in case is my recent trip to Disney World with my family.  I loved this vacation.  Mom worked phone app to perfection.  Love how Mom worked so hard planning our days.  My love grows for her every day.  Packing was pretty easy this trip.  Our family doesn't require all the stuff we used to like really big mobile for Brooklyn.  Learning to pack light so we can fly instead of drive.  I love flying and renting a minivan when we get there.  Our first day we met our cousins Chad, Christina, Valentina and Hudson at Disney Springs for lunch. 

I'm hearing people talk about how learning to make yourself do something is so hard for autistics.  It used to be hard for me, but I've realized how much more fulfilling my life can be if I try new things.  This trip to Disney World I managed to go on three different roller coasters.  I had never been brave enough to go on one before, but this trip people in my family really wanted me to make an effort to shame other scaredy cats.  My favorite roller coaster, Expedition Everest was so much fun.  I was so nervous, but I just held on to Mom and she kept me calm.  She was incredibly happy.  Meeting that Yeti on the ride was my favorite.

Long to have more new experiences.  Mom makes my life more interesting by signing me up for things like horse back riding and biking in the Special Olympics.  I'm also hoping to do ice skating this winter.  Soon I'm going to visit New York City.  Yearning to go more places also.  Like meeting people too.  It moves me when people make an effort to know me.  The monumental task of making a real effort with me was taken on by our cousin Chad.  Became one of my favorite people when he hugged me so much.  Most people can't be that comfortable.  Meet you in NYC!

I have a good friend who really should try RPM.  Years go more quickly the older you get.  He spends lots of his time meaning something different from what he says.  This must make him so frustrated.  I'm sorry lately for my friends like him who are so intelligent but make people think they are mentally disabled because they say things that don't make sense.  My dream is for kids like him to give RPM tomorrow some serious thought.  It's not only for my good friends who are non-verbal.  Many kids who can talk do great.  My friend Reagan is a great example.  She can say a lot but her inner voice shines through when she spells.  

More people really must give RPM a try.  Hearing it from me might not be enough. You might need the push my mom and her friends are going to present at their first informational meeting they are holding in October.  People can come hear more about RPM.  I might be presenting also.  Lots of people watching makes me nervous, but I am going to try and answer your questions about RPM.  Having people small makes me large.  Mad that some people doubt that I'm actually typing my own thoughts, but seeing is believing.  Meeting Soma and her son Tito will also help convince you.  He is amazing.

Pointing to communicate often is not perfect.  I'm only able to easily spell my thoughts with Mom.  Learning to be comfortable with more people is most important goal of mine right now.  I am pretty good with Dad, Emma, Miss Parcheta, and Mr. Barkley.  Learning to type with no one holding my keyboard also.  My mom learned about using dictation as practice.  Love doing it.  Makes me feel empowered.  Makes me excited for the future.  At last no one would doubt me.  Name mans greatest achievements...most were laughed at at first.

To say really nice things about my family is my goal of this blog post.  To say they are the best is an understatement.  Mom is the person who interrupts my stimming to get me to write these blog posts.  We have been a team my whole life and now more than ever.  To say I lean on seeing her each day would be accurate.  Other kids aren't as lucky.  My parents pay us so much attention and keep us happy.  Our family treats everyone with respect even if they don't deserve it.  We want people to treat others that way also. 

You might perhaps think having a truly perfect family isn't possible, but most people owe my success to their learning how to do the right things to help me.  People yearn to understand my living wants.  Each year my wants take a great name.  Wearing largely on me this year has been all the people who make teaching RPM another thing to doubt.  Weeks have gone by that could of been used learning new incredible things.  I'm teaming up with really proper kindred people to really promote RPM on our blogs.  Try tomorrow to meaningfully make someone included who otherwise is excluded. 

Learning to make my wants known has greatly improved my life.  Emma, my sister makes an effort to talk to me.  We have gotten really good at spelling together.  Mom is so proud of us.  Maybe once (my little sister) Brooklyn learns to spell, we can spell together also.  She is so interested, but she needs to pull great learning off before she's ready.  Part of me thinks she is my person who accepts me the most.  She has always loved me as her smart older sister.  People ought to follow her example.  Love doesn't need words.

All my new friendships I'm nurturing right now are owed to my ability to communicate.  I'm so happy to have friends.  People that understand what life is like being autistic.  Paving the way like me with their writings is Reagan, Philip, Ryan, Fox and Brayden.  


Philip has been my friend for a long time.  He inspired me to work my butt off so I'm able to chat with him.  He always keeps wanting me to try new things.  I'm pushing him to overcome his shyness and anxiety, making our meetings more productive.  Love texting with him.  Reagan is my other best friend.  She is one year younger, but we have a lot in common.  Girls like us need each other


Had people sometimes, myself included, thinking I'd never have friends.  Now loving all my new friends and the time we spend together.  It lessens my loneliness knowing I have so many people who care about me.  My learning to be a good friend is important to me.  Renovating listening skills makes me another ear people can count on. 

The newest friend is Bella.  Managed to make her my friend on another continent.  The boys live in another country, but are still in North America.  Man are we a worldwide group!  Emulating my mom is my goal.  She has patience and is a good friend.

The last few weeks have been chances for new experiences.  Mom went to Austin to train on RPM with Soma.  She came back invigorated to make more of a difference working with me and other kids.  Must have myself included because I am also benefitting from what she learned.  Soma talked such wisdom. 

Even though I can communicate by typing, there can be many other things my Mom can work on.  My small theory is that I'm picked to make other people aware of what is possible for everyone.  We are making a difference.  Using RPM to work on other skills is important. 

Once I was able to type Mom was really proud, but there is more to work on.  Taking the time is yearned for.  Some of the things we have used RPM with are piano, drawing, writing and dictation.  These things are skills often neglected.  I'm actually pretty good at piano.  I need more practice if I'm going to write love songs someday.  Presently the songs perform only in my head.  I've also pointed working with my incredible tutor, Miss "P".  Mom hired her to come work with me on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

Gave learning how to ride a bike a try this summer also.  It was a hard school.  Finding the right bike seemed like the hardest part of the process.  Right away I felt comfortable with my bike.  People were impressed how quickly I picked up on it.  I was trying to impress the boy who was my assigned helper.  The whole process was awesome. 

Meeting new goals has made my summer great so far.  Was hoping awesome things would happen this summer and they have.  You just need to give things a shot.  Autism doesn't stop me anymore!
