People with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often struggle to master language -- both written and spoken. Yet more and more people with ASD are acquiring language through literacy first, and technology has helped make this connection for them. In fact, some people with ASD have become authors, bloggers, and poets.
Carly Fleischmann, an author who has autism writes, “I am not able to talk out of my mouth; however, I have found another way to communicate by spelling on my computer.”
