It's hard to believe, but 2016 is passing fast, and we're booking dates for fall and winter '17. My newest book SWITCHED ON is on sale now.  Meanwhile, I'm busy with my car business, teaching, speaking, and advocacy work as well.  There's a lot going on!
Would you like to bring me to your college or conference? If so, contact Tom Gagnon or Sally Itterly, my speaking representatives at The Lavin Agency. Do you want to set up a program in your elementary, middle, or high school? I handle those directly; write me at john@johnrobison.com.

Overview

I am best known to the public for my writing. My books on life with autism have made bestseller lists on four continents. They are part of the curriculum in many schools and colleges. The autism community knows me as a vocal and enthusiastic advocate for research and policy to improve the lives of autistic people. In other circles I am recognized for my photography; the automobile company I founded; and the electronic music creations of my youth – including special effects for Pink Floyd’s sound company and custom guitars for the band KISS.
