Celebrating the Spectrum

An Island in Alaska

Jared Stewart describes himself as an “ambassador for autism”. After college, he started a job at an adult autism treatment center and quickly realized he was on the spectrum. Jared was officially diagnosed with Asperger’s a short time later. In this engaging conversation, Jared talks about the two cliffs parents of children with autism face; when their child enters adulthood and no longer gets government-mandated services and the second, scarier cliff, when the parent can no longer care for the child. Jared is advocating for a world that celebrates the uniqueness and strengths of those with autism.
