About me

Gender MALE
Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Autism Ambassador
Location Saint Louis, Missouri
Introduction I am the Autism Ambassador for Easter Seals Midwest and also the author of Finding Kansas: Living and Decoding Asperger's Syndrome. My passion in life is raising awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorders and to help the world understand how the mind of a person on the spectrum works. I can do this because I am on the spectrum (Asperger's). I was diagnosed at the age of 20 and after the diagnosis a lot of my quirks made sense. I didn't understand who I was though and went into a deep depression. Through this depression though I became very keen on my inner self and I started to write. I wrote and I wrote and before I knew it I wrote a book. 5 years later I am, among other things, giving presentations to police, teachers, and parents and am now starting my quest on making the best blog possible! The views on this blog are mine and may not be reflective of Easter Seals Midwest. If you have any questions, or comments, or have an article idea please email me at aaron.likens@yahoo.com.
