OAARSN Book Review

"I had no means to shout!" by Charles Hale Jr of Virginia, 2000.

Charles Hale has autism and speaks only through facilitated communicating. His mother and facilitator explains: "We wanted to get the message out so that people would understand just what kind of life an individual with autism and who is non-verbal really has. Charles wanted people to understand the frustration of being locked inside himself, yet anxious to join mainstream life. He wanted to show them the difference between just existing and having a life. A life with hopes and dreams."
