After years of what his parents called “the diagnosis of the month club,” Dylan was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome (now called High Functioning Autism) at the age of eight. Life has always been a challenge for Dylan. When he was little, he struggled with how to learn the rules and follow directions that often did not make sense to him. As he got older, he was challenged, especially socially, by a world that often seemed extremely confusing to him. Even today, Dylan works hard to figure out what he needs to do in order to get through each day as a 27-year-old adult with autism in a very fast-paced society. Dylan graduated from Scarborough High School in 2010 and is currently pursuing his goal of earning a living through comedy. Dylan has enjoyed his experiences speaking about his life and the book he co-wrote with his father. His presentations have been overwhelmingly well received. He has now presented over 100 times to thousands of people across America. Dylan hopes his work co-authoring with his father to write Chasing the Rabbit: A Dad’s Life Raising a Son on the Autism Spectrum and authoring his own soon-to-be-released book, Bad Choices Make Good Stories: My Life with Autism, will help families as they navigate through the difficulties of living life on the spectrum. He currently lives in Los Angeles, CA.
