Boy with autism communicates by typing

21st June 2010

A thirteen year-old autistic boy has been taught to type so that he can communicate his thoughts to his family.

Jamie Posonby is unable to speak, but can use a computer to write poetry and to help his family to understand him better. His mother, Serena, said: "We had no idea that there was a person in there who knew everything. Through the typing we have discovered he knows all sorts of things. He is completely on the ball, his sense of humour is completely all there."
