Are you "normal?" Should we force those with autism to behave "normally?" Dennis Alexander (and his alter-ego, James A MacAlister) speak on how damaging such social demands and “therapies” are to the Autistic. Dennis Alexander is a high-functioning autistic, a poly-skilled polymath and has a genius IQ. He has worked in a number of fields including Drafting/Design, Information Technology, Construction, Audio/Video Production, Financial Services, Landscaping, Soundtrack Composition.
He is currently wrapping up production on a science-fiction/drama, full-length feature film of which he is Producer, Director, Writer, Star, Editor, Soundtrack Composer, Prop Maker, Camera/Audio Operator, Sound Designer, Special Effects… and Janitor.
Hobbies include costuming, gardening, fly-fishing, gold prospecting, woodworking, and electronics with interests in chemistry, quantum mechanics, theology, the arts, and beekeeping.
His office looks like a laboratory/studio/workshop with piles of boxes filled with various projects at various stages of completion.
He, along with his wife of 15 years, Teresa, also have a Cockapoo and a Shih-tzu named Daisy and Sophie. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
