Autism Advocacy


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.
