In my life is a friend who is very special. Her name is Kaylie. We have been through a lot together. First we met at (my old school). We rode the bus together. I used to want to talk to her in class. Miles we traveled. We could not communicate then. Now we can. We both learned RPM. We left (our old school) for Heim. We get academics from school. We meet every week to talk. Sometimes we play. I am so happy to have her as my best friend. I would like to introduce you now to Kaylie. -Philip

AUTISM GETS HARD TO DEAL WITH SOMETIMES. DAD AND MOM STAY ENERGIZED BY MY SUCCESS DOING RPM. CAN MY SUCCESS INSPIRE OTHERS LIKE ME TO TRY HARD TO ACHIEVE THE SAME RESULTS? BEING AUTISTIC IS HARD ENOUGH, WITHOUT THE ADDED TRAUMA OF NOT BEING ABLE TO COMMUNICATE. HELP KAYLIE BECOME AN ADVOCATE FOR AUTISTICS AROUND THE WORLD. WE ARE NOT WORTHLESS. SOMEDAY KAYLIE AND OTHERS LIKE ME EVERYWHERE WILL LEARN NOT TO BE AFRAID TO SHOW MANY DIFFERENT ABILITIES.
