First and foremost, I am a father.
Beyond that, I'm also a web developer, a former radio broadcaster and most notably, I'm an autism advocate.
My son was diagnosed in 2007 on the autism spectrum and I have since dedicated a portion of my life (not all because the majority is for my family) towards raising autism awareness.
I don't want to just raise awareness though, I push for Autism Understanding and Acceptance around the world.
Children, teenagers and adults with autism around the world need to be accepted for who they are, helped as much as possible and relieved of the barriers that prevent an independent and happy life.
Research, treatments and hard work will only get us part of the way... the rest is up to us to understand and to accept.
