Autism is awesome


Hello, my name is David Snape and welcome to my brand new blog. This is going to be a blog about my experiences with autism, talking about stories from the past and opening up to what’s happening now. I want to make this world a better place and make sure that even with autism, the world isn’t such a scary place and people like us can thrive and be successful.

Thank you so much and I hope you like the blog.
