Your welcome. I thought it was amazing to get in the mind of a non verbal adult that has Autism. It really makes you look at things diffrently.

I just recently saw her blog but I didnt see her CNN video until now. The interview filled me with a sense of awe. Amanda expressed herself so powerfully. I wanted the video not to end. I wanted to experience what it was like to live in her world. The ablility to communicate through the computer is a great tool. Thanks for sharing it with us.
