Autism Activist To Host Talk
WHEELING — -David George, author, self-advocate and motivational speaker for people of all ages who have been diagnosed with attention deficit order, Asperger’s syndrome, autism or other learning disabilities, will share his experiences at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 15 at Oglebay Institute’s Schrader Environmental Education Center.
George is author of the 2005 self-help book, “Be Unique, Be You and Live!” which details his difficult journey from childhood through adulthood, living with attention deficit disorder and various learning disabilities that ultimately led to post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic depression and generalized anxiety disorder. He eventually was able to break free from some of these bonds through hard work, perseverance and achieving success and acceptance while at Bethany College.
George seeks to create a community support system to help people connect and grow through the healing power of music, nature imagery, and time spent together in nature. Copies of his book will be available for sale.
