Event description

Description

John Miller was born in 1968 in Montreal, Quebec. As a child he dealt with many social and academic difficulties. After many struggles and hard work he graduated from high school in 1986. John completed a BA in Political Science from Florida Atlantic University. A few years later he decided to get a Masters in Special Education, in order to help those with special needs. By chance John started teaching students with autism. During this time he was diagnosed with Asperger's and began the long road of accepting his own diagnosis. Realizing the many difficulties and barriers he had faced throughout his life, he became a strong advocate for individuals on the spectrum. In 2010 he published a manuscript based on his own life and teaching experiences titled, "The A Word: My Life With Asperger's and the World of Autism." In early 2011 he felt privileged to be invited to the Autism society of Florida's Board. Later in the year he was proled in Autism Spectrum Quarterly. Presently, he is beginning a manuscript on dating and relationships for males with high functioning autism and Asperger's titled; Navigating the Minefield: A Dating and Relationship Guide for Males with High-Functioning Autism and Asperger's.
