I’m Not the One Who Is Lost
Slowly think about changing places.
Your new place:
1. You are a student.
2. You feel people’s thinking..
3. Your power < this place.
Now. How are you feeling?
How are you feeling feeling note writing adult writing about you?
People learning all around. You can.
I am not lost. I am me.

In 2012 Henry faced disability based discrimination when he was denied entry to the middle school across the street from his home. Then 12 year old Henry started “I STAND WITH HENRY” to take action against the segregation and low expectations he encountered and to empower others to stand together and demand full access to equal education in their neighborhoods. Henry’s international social media campaign garnered tens of thousands of supporters and he was allowed entry into his neighborhood school after months of negotiation. Henry went on to excel not only in General Education but it Advanced Honors and Gifted classes.He was the 2013 Recipient of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network's Award for Service to the Self-Advocacy Movement.

Always be yourself, my son is labelled too, he is who he is, not broken, not different, just him, everyone is different, everyone is special, I wouldn’t change my son but I would change a world that doesn’t begin to understand
A prophet of your time.
Communication is not just talking!
“Different…not Less” Embrace our differences.
Henry Frost, I am glad you are you. You are making the world better by telling everyone this.
