Amanda Baggs is smarter than a lot of people I know despite the fact that she has the diagnosis of Autism. Watch this and listen to what she says--all of it---the last sentences are very important. The concept of what Ms. Baggs is saying is probably not able to be grasped by a large number of Americans. I certainly hope you can grasp it.
There is a lot to think about here. So much that contemplating this overwhelms me and makes me upset.
Amanda Baggs has Autism and is non-verbal, she communicates in English language by typing words into a program that reads aloud her writings.
