This is Jacopo, autistic. Jacopo, 11 years old, does not speak and he is a case of low cognitive functioning autism.When I came in contact with autism, I was impressed by the high rates at which manifests the disorder. I could not understand how anyone could be so uneducated on this question and after I realized that I was not the only one. There is great lack of information about it. So I decided to get to know the issue and I tried to tell Jacopo.
