Florida Matters: Living on the Autism Spectrum
How do young adults diagnosed with a form of autism describe themselves?
This week on Florida Matters, we meet Andrew Casey, 23, who interviewed his peers about their diagnosis and how they define themselves. And Andrew explains how he manages with Asperger's Syndrome which is on the autism spectrum.
