Deej

Deej is the story of DJ Savarese ('Deej'), a gifted, young writer and advocate for nonspeaking autistics. Once a 'profoundly disabled' foster kid on a fast track to nowhere, DJ is now a first-year college student who insists on standing up for his peers: people who are dismissed as incompetent because they are neurologically diverse. Will Deej be able to find freedom for himself and others like him?
