"A Perspective Unheard." Matteo, a 14-year-old with autism, shares through his letter board what has helped the most.

“Truth is – autism, it’s not what you think.”  Matteo Musso, a 14-year-old non-vocal teen with autism, shares his truth through a letter board. He will share what really made the difference when it came to his own growth and evolution, as well as his perspective on life as he experiences it through the lens of autism. In addition you will have an opportunity to ask Matteo questions regarding stims, diet, attitude, behaviors, school, therapies, exercise, and anything else you want to know that may help your child. “Here is my truth. It may not be yours. But I’ll explain mine. A perspective unheard.”  Matteo

- Our Nonprofit, Creative Autism Solutions Team
We approach autism from the assumption of intelligence and competence of the autistic or nonverbal person. It is this assumption that is the basis for our success in teaching, educating and sharing.

"Helping to change the way autistic people are misunderstood by society through informative, inspiring materials and speaking engagements. We encourage and inspire people to look beyond what they can see to learn the truth about autism and others outside of the 'stereotypical norm.'"
