In this video is a friend I have mentioned in previous essays. He has also posted here as a guest author. He is a few years younger than me and we have known each other many years. Our moms are friends and talk to each other about autism (what else?). His name is Dillan Barmache.
Dillan is going to my old high school and he is going to graduate with a diploma in a year. Then he will take on the world.
He has been infected by the same bug I have been — a need to educate and change the way professionals look at our type of autism. I am proud to share his presentation at Stanford University to medical professionals.
His message is identical to mine. Open your minds. Let us out of our prisons.
I’m thrilled to see so many people with autism be heard, be advocates and educate.
