AutismAsperger.net serves to build greater
awareness of the autism spectrum and in particular, Asperger
Syndrome. It joins other websites with this same focus and
will work together with them toward strengthening our community
of people on the autism spectrum. I hope autismasperger.net
will help people appreciate those on the autism spectrum for
who they are and participate with them to develop strengths
and make accommodations for challenges.
UPDATE: Since this video
was taken I have received my doctoral degree and serve as
assistant professor of special education at Adelphi
University focusing my teaching and research on improving
the lives of people on the autism spectrum. Meanwhile, my
travels to educate and raise awareness about autism continue,
having presented in 45 out of the 50 United States, and in
28 countries across 6 of the 7 continents across the globe.
