Rock On!

Here is a heartwarming article about a boy with Asperger's who is a drummer in a rock band.

"The band was the idea of Evan and Sawyer's dad, Daniel Goodson, as a way to involve Sawyer in socially-acceptable activity and, according to Goodson, the benefits were more notable and larger than he expected.
Sawyer has a form of autism called Asperger's Syndrome, a high-functioning autism with profound social issues. The band has provided an opportunity for social interaction — not only for Sawyer, but for his 6-year-old brother Cameron, who has the more recognizable non-verbal form of autism. "
