The great aspect of being an adult within the autism syndrome? We get to talk about it, to write about it, to explain a bit about what we feel, and why we act as we do.
And I’ve just discovered a video by author and teacher Stephen Shore. You can view it here: http://www.autismsupportnetwork.com/news/video-interview-stephen-shore-autism-aspergers-220123452
Stephen Shore lives on the autism spectrum. Like many others, he developed normally until 18 months of age when, as he put it, he got hit by the “Autism Bomb”. Today he has a PhD and is an assistant professor of special education at Adelphi University.
Stephen’s books include: Living Along the Autism Spectrum–What Does It Mean to Have Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome; Understanding Autism for Dummies, and Beyond the Wall–Personal Experiences with Autism and Aspergers Syndrome. His newest book is : Ask and Tell: Self-Advocacy and Disclosure for People on the Autism Spectrum.
