Matt Hayes: A Tale of Silence and Beyond – A Tribute to Autistic Intelligence

by on December 13, 2013

Watch A Tale of Silence and Beyond, a tribute to autistic intelligence by Matt Hayes.


Matt Hayes is autistic. He started typing at a very young age and surprised everyone because everyone thought he was mentally retarded and could not think normally.

The film A Tale of Silence and Beyond demonstrates how intelligent autistic people are and how they can think like everyone else, but their communication and motor skills do not allow them to communicate how most people do.

Matt types his own words while his mom steadies his hand, she is in no way typing for him. The blue letters at the bottom of the screen are him typing everything out.
