One of the 50 Most Inspiring

We are super excited to announce that one of the individuals featured in the upcoming “The United States of Autism” film, has been named among the 50 Most Inspiring Autistic People of 2011 alongside folks like Temple Grandin herself!

Alex is the founder of Wrong Planet, one of the largest and most important communities for people with Asperger’s syndrome and autism.  He is also the producer of Autism Talk TV, which is a media effort supported by Autism Speaks.

Next up, Alex will be seen in New Jersey for the upcoming ASPEN Spring Conference on April 29, 2012. ASPEN (Asperger’s Syndrome Education Network) offers professionals the opportunity to join us at meetings where speakers are scheduled and provides Professional Development Hours to those who attend. ASPEN is registered with the NJ Department of Education as a Professional Development Provider.

Congratulations Alex and keep up the hard work!

    Why is abuse against autistic children, teens and adults rising? I wonder what Mitt or Obama would have to say about this story? Or are they even aware this goes on?

    Caregivers caught on tape abusing defenseless severely autistic young man is a wake up call to all of us in autism communities across the globe. Video surveillance catching the abusers probably saved this young man’s life!
