Scott James - Autism & X Factor

Well I've just watched the recording again from last night (on X Factor site) and even while sitting at work I felt quite emotional.

Scott James' audition was brilliant and the way everyone was behind him especially touched me. I wish him well as he progresses to the next round.

Don't know if I ever mentioned it before but my brother, Andy, is Autistic, but unlike Scott, Andy cannot communicate with us or talk or hear. However some of the mannerisms are the same and I just wish I knew what went on behind that closed door!

Scott's wish is to break down the preconceived ideas people have regarding Autism and he certainly did that last night.

So even if Scott does not win X Factor he has already had his dream come true.

Bless you Scott.
