ABOUT US

My name is Jack and this blog is dedicated to my little brother Calder. Calder is non-verbal autistic so he cannot communicate with people in a standard conversation. Even though he doesn’t have speech, Calder can express himself in many different ways, mainly by typing on his i-Pad. Calder also refers to himself with we instead of I. He’s shown me that he’s funny, stubborn, and wise. And he wants to be heard.

Through this blog, Calder and I get to connect, exchange ideas, and share insight into the world of autism. The autism spectrum is broad  and varied. I’ve branded my brother’s as Calderism. He has a lot of funny phrases. Calder wants everyone to know “we are easy to love,” and that we need to respect his freedom to snack. He really likes cookies. Welcome!
