Tom Pruyn is an unreliably speaking autistic activist who was denied a meaningful education because his cognitive abilities were underestimated. I want to talk about how my mouth betrays me. You think that what I say is what I mean and often it is not. The letterboards allow me to slow down long enough to express my true thoughts. Th education system needs to know that words from my mouth are not the extent of my knowledge or desires.
