I am Matteo and I have autism. They were wrong about me.
Autism is a special, loving kind of energy. This is important to know because it affects everything, how you see your child or your relative on the spectrum, your students, your patients and yes, your patience! First and foremost, God and Mom have given me my voice, so I should really use it. I've been silent for 11 and a half years, so I've got a lot to say. Finally, someone needs to change society's views about autistics and those without a voice. I like to say, look beyond what you see to learn the truth. Silence has nothing to do with intelligence, so let's believe in everybody.
