To say that the QWERTY board, and Facilitated Communication, has changed Peter’s life, is an understatement. The following is a poem Peter wrote, expressing something of what these two things mean to him…

The QWERTY Board

Oh Board, my special amusement.
My true love, my fun time
My friend, my everything.

You are to me what air is to a bird.
Without you I cannot say a word.
With you around I can be absurd.

We sing, we prance, we have romance,
But one day I will have the chance
to play your letters in a solo dance.
