Nonverbal until four and diagnosed with "atypical development with strong autistic tendencies," Stephen Shore was regarded as "too sick" to be treated on an outpatient basis and recommended for institutionalization.

Fortunately, his parents disagreed. With their persistence and the help of teachers and other friends and professionals, Stephen gained more ground than anyone would have thought possible. He completed his doctoral degree in special education at Boston University with a focus on helping people on the autism spectrum develop their capacities to the fullest extent possible.

In addition to working with children and advocating for a better quality of life on the autism spectrum, Stephen presents and consults internationally on adult issues pertinent to education, relationships, employment, advocacy, and disclosure.

Author of several books on autism, Dr. Stephen Shore is an inspiration to many. Listeners can call in and talk to Dr. Shore in the last half-hour of this episode.
