Sixteen-year-old Yap Hanzhen of Malaysia apparently suffered through a childhood in which even the most simple of communications was difficult. Hanzhen’s parents say he barely spoke through most of his adolescence.

Like many children who display difficulties communicating during early development, Yap turned out to have a form of autism – a fact that his parents struggled to convince doctors and child psychologists, who were apparently quick to presume simple bad parenting as the source of young Yap’s speech difficulties.

  1. Lovely post! His drawings are amazing! Its great to see someone doing so well after having such a difficult start in life. I think everyone has a talent for something, just many of us never discover it, many more dont even bother to look…
