Inspirational graduation speech by Autistic student- You have to watch!

Of all the folks that spoke for the 2010 graduating class in the US and beyond, Eric Duquette may have been the least likely.

His story is an inspiration to parents and students alike.

This video has given me hope- and I hope it does the same for you 🙂
