Computers play a large part in the lives of many autistic people. We use them for games, to compile projects and above all to comunicate with each other. In the picture above, Daniël Schenk and his non-autistic sister Esther are about to begin using their family's new computer, and in the photo below 5yo Tom Parry Jr is playing a game on his family computer.

F12 is swimming with a dolphin.

It can take a great deal of courage for an autistic person to try something different, something new. F12 has found the courage to get in the pool with the dolphin, and is managing to hang in there.
