College involved "many anxiety attacks and many trips home" for Daniel
Share-Strom, an autistic 27-year-old motivational speaker in Bradford,
Ontario. It wasn't just the challenge of organizing his assignments and
fighting the disability office for the extra time he needed for tests. It
was also managing all the aspects of daily life that most people not on the
autism spectrum take for granted.
"Relationships are so much harder to understand or initiate when by default
you don't really know what certain facial expressions mean or what certain
actions mean," Share-Strom says.
