Awareness

This guest blog post is by Autism Speaks media intern Megan Rosado. Megan has a twin brother on the autism spectrum. 

My brother Rocky is severely autistic and nonverbal, which means our conversations are quite interesting. 

We received an email from Rebekah Travis about her brother Richie who is on the autism spectrum. Richie became a huge Taylor Swift fan after seeing her new video, "Shake It Off" (below). Richie was so enamored with Swift's newest single that he decided to write her a letter. Below is what Rebekah wrote on her Tumblr about her brother's letter and under that are some excerpts from the letter.
