When individuals with High Functioning Aspergers Syndrome have the proper supports in place they can live meaningful lives. They have much to contribute to society, when able to do so, from a place of strength. They are out of the box thinkers and can be very innovative, providing creative, detailed descriptions to solve problems - within their area of interest. However, Aspergers Syndrome can also have a serious downside when those supports, accommodations and understandings are not in place.

In Anson's case, the many challenges he faced with regard to being appropriately acknowledged for his expertise and valuable contributions have resulted in five Human Rights Tribunal complaints against Canadian sport organizations and government agencies. These groups have attempted to silence him because they didnt like aspects of his behaviour - Aspergers Meltdowns - that were actually a direct consequence of their attitude and behaviour towards him. This situation would lead to himbeing diagnosed at age 38 as having this mental health syndrome, for which there is no cure.

Join Jason Ansonas heshares hispersonal story of Aspergers and the strengths and weaknesses associated with it, of how hebumped in the dark throughout the first part of hislife but now has a blueprint to be successful moving forward.
