Limited Capacity seats available

I want to talk about silencing the already silent by denying their method of communication. This is the story about having a window open and a door slam. I was trapped in silence before I learned to use the letter board. Now that I have found a way to communicate, nobody in my school will let me use it. Advocacy for nonspeaking autistics must start with communication rights.
