Through inspirational speaking, consulting, training and coaching, I help Aspies - people with autism and Asperger Syndrome (AS; considered a less severe form of autism) - work, play and live better with others (known as neurotypicals or NTs)...and vice versa.
First and foremost, I'm an Aspie myself. Having worked, studied and socialized in an NT world, I have come to understand many of the challenges facing autists, Aspies and NTs.

Therapeutic Recreation Conference and Training Committee, Therapeutic Recreation Conference and Training Committee | Maryland Recreation and Parks Association
Thank you, Jeffrey Deutsch, for presenting the "Understanding and Communicating with Aspies" workshop at the Therapeutic Recreation Branch winter workshop in January 2012. Our membership found the information enlightening from your perspective as a self-defined Aspie. As recreation professionals, we found it helpful to refresh our knowledge of best practices in providing programs that are inclusive to all individuals, including those with Aspergers.
Victoria Geis, Director of Admissions (Silver Spring) | The Auburn School
Thank you so much for providing an engaging and thought provoking evening! I am so grateful that you agreed to present for us; I know we all learned a lot and enjoyed some helpful discussions.

Comic Look at Coping
From a comedic perspective, showing Aspies – people on the autism spectrum – how the rest of the world works, how NTs (neurotypicals, who are not on the spectrum) perceive the world *and* us and how we can survive and thrive. Plus showing NTs who these strange creatures are, why we tend to think, talk and act differently and how to study, work and live with us – even date us – much more happily.
