Presentation       Abstract/Bios      Website

Elizabeth Bonker, 14, is profoundly affected by autism and can’t speak, yet she illuminates the inner world of autism through poems that she types one finger at a time. I Am in Here: The Journey of a Child with Autism Who Cannot Speak but Finds Her Voice by Elizabeth and her mother, Virginia Breen, combines Elizabeth’s poetry with Virginia’s stories. Intensive educational, behavioral and medical interventions have all helped Elizabeth to find her voice.
