narrations, and imitation. With much hard work and the loving
support of his wife, Stephen is now a professor of special

the needs of children with autism and other special needs – and
gives music lessons to children with autism in his spare time.

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.
