2012 Autism Understanding and Awareness Tour

Aaron Likens, an accomplished public speaker, published author, avid blogger and remarkable individual was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome - a high-functioning form of autism - at age 20.  Now 29, Aaron has found an opportunity to share with the world how the Autism Spectrum Disorder mind works through his book, Finding Kansas: Living and Decoding Asperger's Syndrome, and through his position as an Autism Ambassador and Community Education Specialist for TouchPoint Autism Services.
