Alix Generous is a young woman with a million and one ideas — she's done award-winning science, helped develop new technology and tells a darn good joke (you'll see). She has Asperger's, a form of autistic spectrum disorder that can impair the basic social skills required for communication, and she's worked hard for years to learn how to share her thoughts with the world. In this funny, personal talk, she shares her story — and her vision for tools to help more people communicate their big ideas.
My wife and I are blessed to have two sons gifted with autism. They are a tremendous blessing to our whole family. I am sure that there are many other families who feel the same about being blessed in the same way.
