Meet Ben Twist. Ben is a student at Lansbury Bridge School & Sports College. He is the student of a teacher named Ruth Clarkson, is 11 years old, and has autism. He failed his SAT exams recently, and was crushed. He really wasn't expecting to do so poorly. His teacher decided to do something about it.
She understood that exams aren't everything, and wrote a touching letter to the boy.
Check out Ms. Clarkson's letter below.
After Bens mother, Gail Twist, read the letter she was left in tears. She found it so touching, she posted a photo of the letter on Twitter with the caption “In tears. A letter to my 11 yr old autistic son from his school. “These tests only measure a little bit of you”.
