The Life Autistic | Mike

Mike has overcome many challenges since being diagnosed with autism in 1969. Though he had to learn to talk before he could attend school, he graduated on time and now works at Talk To Me Technologies, a company that develops speech devices to assist people with disabilities. Mike overcame another challenge 10 years ago, when he started dating Margo, an occupational therapist. Mike believes having autism helps him understand what his stepsons are going though. Mike and Margo share their thoughts on marriage and raising children with autism in this episode of The Life Autistic.
