On Friday April 6 at 11am EST Amy Gravino will be hosting a LIVE Chat! Please join us! Amy is a certified college coach for individuals with Asperger's Syndrome, and the founder of A.S.C.O.T (Asperger's Syndrome Coaching and Other Techniques) Coaching, LLC. She is also a seasoned public speaker, and has spoken at conferences, professional development workshops, support group meetings, and more since the age of 14.
Here is how Amy describes herself:
"When I was younger, my inexplicably large head kept me from ever wearing a hat. Now, I wear many of them: Asperger's Syndrome college coach. Self-advocate. Public speaker. Writer. Woman. These are all who I have been, who I am, and who I will continue to be. As a board member of GRASP, the Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership, I've been able to be a voice for individuals on the autism spectrum who do not have one. I am especially passionate about transition to secondary education and dating/sexuality issues, particularly issues faced by women on the spectrum, and I've often been referred to as the Aspie Dr. Ruth" because I speak frankly and objectively about issues a lot of folks are afraid to touch. I have opened my own business, A.S.C.O.T Coaching, LLC, and with a recently obtained Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis, plan to use my experiences and my training to improve the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum."
