John Elder Robison - Authoring Help for those with Asperger’s
For best-selling author John Elder Robison, a diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome at the age of 40 was something of a revelation, explaining everything from the social isolation of his youth to his penchant for electronics. With this new insight into his life, Robison discovered that he could help others with the condition, an autism spectrum disorder. Writing his bestselling memoir Look Me in the Eye (with the sequel to come in April 2011) and speaking publicly about his own experiences has earned Robison international recognition and caught the attention of BIDMC neurologist Alvaro Pascual-Leone, M.D., Ph.D Click here to be inspired by John's story.
With this knowledge, we created Grateful Nation, an interactive community that gives grateful people the opportunity and resources to connect and give back.
