|Introduction||"I've checked out your blog and, I have to say that the breadth and scope of information is quite impressive." - Dr. Bonni Alpert, director of Student Disability Services, Western New England College|
"I loved reading your analysis about what people need for coping. I learned a lot from your post about how to think about what I need and how to tell people.
"Also, I am always receiving emails from people who want to know how to succeed at work with Asperger's, and I think I will send them to your site -- I love the niche you've carved out for yourself." - Penelope Trunk, Brazen Careerist founder, entrepreneur and Aspie
I have Asperger Syndrome (AS), which is on the autism spectrum; I call myself an Aspie. My wife, Emily, is a neurotypical - NT for short.
I give inspirational talks, consult with organizations and train people on how to recognize and work well with people on the spectrum and coach individuals on and off the spectrum - including NTs who want to improve their relationships with the Aspies in their lives.
