Nonverbal until four, and with much support from his parents, teachers, wife, and others, Stephen is now a professor at Adelphi University focusing on aligning best practice in supporting autistic people to lead fulfilling and productive lives.
In addition to working with children and talking about life on the autism spectrum, Stephen is an internationally renowned educator, consultant and author on lifespan issues pertinent to education, relationships, employment, advocacy, and disclosure.
