Apple’s Heartwarming Video Shows Autism in a Different Light

“Not being able to speak is not the same as not having something to say.”

Apr 11, 2016

April is Autism Acceptance Month - a month dedicated to raising awareness of autism, but especially to promoting acceptance, respect and celebration of those with this developmental disability. The same objective rings true of Apple’s recently released video, Dillan’s Voice.

The two-minute clip introduces Dillan Barmache, a 16-year-old with autism who lives in California. Dillan may be nonverbal, but that doesn’t stop him from communicating with the world through special software on his iPad that reads out sentences as he types them. While this incredible technology has opened up a whole new world for Dillan, it has, more importantly, enabled Dillan to share his world with others.
