  • This is a book of poetry written by Fox Bailey. He is ten years old. He is autistic and talks with a letter board instead of his mouth. He has been talking since May 2014 when he started learning RPM (Rapid Prompting Method). He thinks all autistics need to get a proper education and gives speeches to advocate for it. He loves all learning and wants to be a scientist and poet when he grows up. He lives in Waterloo with his family, two cats and his service dog Tetley.

    Here's how Fox feels about writing: Being a writer is so amazing. It is a great way to express feelings and troubles. I had no way to do that before I learned to talk with letters. Appreciate so much ability to talk and write. Being heard and understood is the best feeling in the world.
