Poem of the Day from Abby

Hey folks in the spirit of April Autism Awareness, we wanted to share this masterpiece poem from Abby. Abby is nine years old and has Asperger’s syndrome. She also has a younger brother with Asperger’s. Abby loves to draw and excels in math.

Poem by Abby

I don’t like sounds that are loud.
I don’t like people who crowd.
I don’t like mud because it’s icky.
I don’t like things that are sticky.
I don’t like bugs because they bite.
I don’t like boys because they fight.
I don’t like peas that are round and green and
I don’t like people who are mean.

Please leave Abby a comment to let her know what you think of her great work.

    You go Abby! I don’t like those things either- well, except boys. I like boys, but I’m twelve. You might like boys when your twelve too.
