“Um Canto do Céu na Terra” meaning “ A Corner of Heaven on Earth” was named by João Carlos, and its main aim is to display the texts and array of writings of its author. João Carlos has a Pervasive Developmental Disorder with autistic traits. As a child he exhibited a particular interest in numbers and letters and despite his scarce verbal expression he has managed to overcome this barrier through writing conveying his thoughts and inner world. Having a PDD he displays physical concerns which still need to be addressed such as poor fine psychomotor skills, dealing with frustration and emotions and low attention span. He hand writes using a pencil and needs the aid of a third party to control the movement of the hand. He is still very selective with whom he writes with and his interest in Information and Communication Technologies is low. In spite of this characteristic concerns regarding his autonomy have led to the introduction of the computer. João Carlos reveals very good learning skills and a keen interest for spiritual or energy issues. Since his early school days his writings or texts refer to the state of our planet Earth and the need for Humanity to rediscover itself and live according to new standards having Love as the cornerstone of life. João Carlos’s dream is to become an energy or holistic doctor. Only the future will tell if his dream will become reality, but when it comes to his writing or this site it shall remain his personal corner and that of whoever finds in his words the way to the Light in the core of their heart. Welcome!
