Max by Murph3 Max by Murph3
A little comic I did for my wife for Christmas.  Our son Max is autistic, and can only say a few words. That doesn’t stop him from trying to communicate with us through his laughing, his crying, and his awesome hugs!

I stumbled upon this through someone else's collection.
This made me tear up (in a good way). My daughter is also autistic.
Thank you for this beautiful message delivered through beautiful art.

Oh my lord, this is just too beautiful. The story behind this is poignant and sweet, and this whole work is filled with so much emotion. I have a younger brother who is mostly non verbal, and it's good to know that there are other people who understand that speaking isn't the only way to communicate. 

If you haven't heard of the poetry book "I'm in Here," I strongly suggest you take a look at it. It's poetry written by a nonverbal woman. It's gorgeous and very inspiring. Thank you for this beautiful work, and keep your chin up! Your son loves you.

So touching and true! One doesn't need words to communicate.

As a note, I have Asperger's Syndrome, which is a high-functioning form of autism, and ironically, my inability to communicate clearly at times (I can talk and do so, but my tact meter is severely broken) has strongly contributed to my love of writing and near-obsession with clearer communication.

My little brother has Down syndrome and he's autistic, so he can't speak or communicate at all, or even go to the bathroom on his own :c But he's still a good kid :D and even if he isn't very cuddly he's still my brother X3

Incredibly touching- A very good friend of mine has autism, and though he is verbal, getting through things is tough. But this rings true for all people- Though they're different, they're not less.
