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.
