Very well done. I am not expert on autism, but thank you for the insight into that world.
Thank you. Very well written, with great insight.
WOnderful. I was going to cut and poste my favourite bit into this comment - but I couldn't choose. Really talented writing. I do hope this places.
'I would make a good bag lady, she thinks and grins again.' Perfect!

Beautiful and articulate. Very well done! Loved this insight.
This is very well done, and as a teacher who has worked with autistic students, you have done very well with the autistic POV. I wonder if it'd have even more impact if your wrote it in the 1st person--you could really bring us right into the mind of an autistic person. Just a thought; this is beautifully written.
"Clarence, her friend with Down syndrome, who has printed crookedly with his rainbow-colored markers: I AM LOVE YOU." tehe reminds me of a girl at my church with downs. wonderful story
This story is very special, well written, insightful, and heartfelt. Thank you for posting this.
Fabulous entry! I've worked with autistic adults and I think you've done an excellent job of capturing the thought pattern and emotions. This is really great work!
I believe those worlds really are there seeping out through the seems. Thanks for letting us in to this one.
