Welcome to my blog

Have you ever met a person with autism? Now you have.

I don’t talk but I think all the time.

This is dedicated to everyone who believes in me.

Live your life as if your days were limited.

Let’s change so that life only sees people for who they are on the inside.

Ready? It’s time.

    Danson, this is asha. I am so glad to see your blog! I will share it with Nisa. Nisa wrote about the world on her blog. She wrote poems. She wrote about loving animals and she wrote about how children should be honored.

    Hello Danson! You mom and my husband are cousins. My daughter, Carmen, was your nanny one summer when you were about 1 1/2 or 2 years old. I met you then when I came to New York to see your mom and grandmother. You are an awesome boy and I am glad we are able to keep in touch! Love, Marilyn & Rick Pederson

    Danson, I have believed in you since you were a little baby! I used to babysit for you and look in your eyes and I could see how much you were thinking, even as a little baby! Thank you for the wise advise about living my life as if my days are limited. WE MUST MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY DAY! If only everyone can take your advise and change so that life only sees people for who they are on the inside the world would be a much better place. You are very wise and helpful, Danson.

    Hey Danson, I knew your Mom when she was your age.
    Do you know American Sign Language Danson?

    Danson, you say you use ‘facilitated communication’ to write your blog. Can you elaborate? Say you were explaining to a 6 year old what that is… thanks.

    Hi Danson, I’m on board. I only want to see the inside of people, and their spirits, hearts and intentions. I hate the distractions people hide behind and use to make you think they are a good person. I know When I talk less and listen, observe and think I find more truth than when I’m running my mouth. Thank you for reminding me of this. I love u and treasure your thoughts. Love auntie lunde

    Hi Danson,

    HOW INSPIRING!!! Maybe you and Joe could communicate and talk about whatever
    you both want to talk about on a daily basis??…..It would be wonderful if I could understand what is going on inside….

    Thank you to you and your Mom for introducing Joe and I to RPM, it has been one of, if not THE MOST important achievement for Joe, and for me to understand him, and all of the children and young adults with Autism!

    Do you ever think there will be a Cure??

    With Love,

    “Aunt” Roberta (Joey’s mom)

    Awesome! I’m a writer too- have you heard of a website called kidpub? its a really cool place to post your writing and the other members (i think we’re up to 2000) will comment with constructive criticism. its pretty helpful. You also get to make friends with a lot of fun people. some of us can be a bit…well….crazy is the only word for it. but that’s what makes them unique and fun.

      My username is Luna Eclipse. except don’t tell them that….i told them all that was my real name. it was fun to invent a person…

    My friend Tahri posted this on Facebook and I just had to take a look.

    Beautful writing. Thank you for the words. I am a writer too and I believe in you so please keep making yourself heard this way. You are amazing!

    Hi danson, your words touched my heart, Thank you. I have a son who has autism, he is 4 years old. He has already taught me so much yet I know there is so much more to learn and to share with others. I want the world to see and know what we see and know, that we are in fact the students and have so much to learn from others who don’t walk the neurotypical path that we have been trained to believe is the only path to follow.

  20. Hey Danson,
    I met your mom today at the Youth Worker’s Conference and I just hope you know you are an amazing young man. Your talent is amazing and I cannot wait to read your book entirely, I read aloud one of your poems to the group today and it was just breath taking. I hope you are well and I wish you much success with all that you do.

    ~Erica
