On the Spectrum

William AzaroffComment

I’ve never spoken publicly about autism. I speak at conferences about my work and communities and co-ops and such, but my personal life has never been a source of material. Until now. In October at the CU Water Cooler Symposium, I’ll be speaking about my experience raising a creative, talented, self-aware, anxious, sensitive and sometimes volatile boy who has gained great gifts and terrible burdens from his autism.
