Wired differently: a poem

On a school holiday day, on a very emotional moment, this mother wrote a poem about her son, Tristan, who has Asperger’s syndrome – and it’s gone viral.

In this moving poem, she says “He is wired differently, To you and me, This child of mine” , describing in a warm, determined, loving and challenging way, who Tristan really is and the barriers that he faces in a society that only sees his outbursts. 

On the BBC’s website, you can watch see this fantastic tribute of a Mum to her autistic Son.
