There is a wide variety of manifestations when it comes to autism. This is why the disorder is called a spectrum. While many may not even be able to speak and require full time care, those on the higher functioning end of the disorder can be helped to lead productive lives with the proper care and education. While they may not be able to communicate very well, they can at times be brilliant either in the arts or the sciences. People like Mozart and Einstein have been thought to be high functioning autistics.

Colin Millar, the school’s headteacher, told BBC News that Kaylee is shy and “She’d be a very quiet little girl, but when she sings, she just opens up. All my kids have talents, as well as barriers, and this is hers.”

It was already hard to watch a Leonard Cohen rendition of his song without getting emotional. We dare you to watch the Kaylee Rodgers version without crying. Go ahead and try! We dare you! We double dare you!
