About Professor Stephen Shore:
Diagnosed with 'Atypical Development and strong autistic tendencies' and 'too sick' for outpatient treatment, Professor Shore was recommended for institutionalisation. Non-verbal until four, and with much support from his parents, teachers, wife and others, Stephen is now a professor at Adelphi University in Long Island, New York, where his research focuses on matching best practice to the needs of people with autism.
In addition to working with children and talking about life on the autism spectrum, Stephen presents and consults internationally on adult issues pertinent to education, relationships, employment, advocacy and disclosure as discussed in his books Beyond the Wall: Personal Experiences with Autism and Asperger Syndrome, Ask and Tell: Self-advocacy and Disclosure for People on the Autism Spectrum, the critically acclaimed Understanding Autism for Dummies, and the newly released DVD, Living along the Autism Spectrum: What it means to have Autism or Asperger Syndrome.
President emeritus of the Asperger's Association of New England and former board member of the Autism Society, Dr Shore serves on the boards of the Asperger Syndrome and High-Functioning Autism Association, the Autism Services Association and other autism-related organisations.
