Description

Too many adults "fall through the cracks". They question why they "feel" different, don't "fit in", or see society as irrational. Some develop crude skills to "exist", or live a sub-par existence on the streets homeless; sucked into prostitution, drugs & alcohol. Many fill mental or penal institutions. It's highly probable they suffer from an undiagnosed ASD. This presentation discusses a grassroots campaign directed towards eliminating these cracks.
