Student with autism publishes illustrated book
What an accomplished young man, Ben Nelson, from Henderson NV.
Ben, 20, has autism and mounds of creativity.
He's been illustrating and creating stories since he was little.
Ben Nelson's parents noticed his symptoms when he was about 2 or 3 and he couldn't talk and hard a hard time communicating. Drawing became his outlet and helped him grow.
Years later, his former teacher at Foothill High School introduced him to Adobe Illustrator. The computer program helped bring the young artist's ideas from paper to the screen.
"Year after year, I got better," Ben Nelson said.
