Atypical | Jesse A. Saperstein
- see more
When Jesse was diagnosed with Asperger’s at 14, he was actually relieved to know that he had a neurological disability and not a character flaw. Once bullied severely in school, he has become a passionate activist for HIV/AIDS, given anti-bullying talks at schools across the country (including the one where he was tormented as a teen), and written the book, Atypical: Life with Asperger’s in 20Â½ Chapters, to dispel the myths surrounding Asperger’s and help people better understand it. His engrossing posts read like emails from one of your most thoughtful, articulate friends, and his work overall shows just how much impact a young but passionate advocate can have.
