My name is Jason Ross who is a 34 year old Autistic Adult and Autistic activist. I support the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network, Autism Network International, and G.R.A.S.P., Greater Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership. I have Aspergers Syndrome. I have always believed in Neurodiversity. A lot of people think of me as the peacemaker in the community because I am always trying my best to bring the whole community together.
I am the type of person who always wants to learn and do new things. I gear up for it. Whenever I see something new, I try to experience it unless say its something that won’t be good for me.
This site will hopefully give you a glimpse into my world. A world which is also part of the Autistic World.
Asperger Syndrome is part of the Autism Spectrum of Disorders which is a pervasive developmental disorder that involves sensory, motor, social, language disorder. People with this disorder tend to have special interests. It also attributes to anxiety. Anxiety plays a big part as well as when the person with the disorder growing up is around people that don’t understand or know that what the disorder is and that the person has the disorder. So, it also attributes to post-traumatic stress disorder. This can lead to problems in adulthood if the person doesn’t seek the right help when the person is in social situations.
Its hard for someone with asperger syndrome/disorder to let go of the past.
My special interest is very specific, it lies in a section of medicine. I was always fascinated by medicine. Especially how the blood moved through the body and was controlled in essence by a pump of what we call the Heart.
The Circulatory System is my special interest. I am reading many things about it and want to learn more and more. I guess that is why I was suggested to go into the area of Ultrasound technology and which is where I currently work. I am looking for positions in teaching, mentoring, and advocating for other Autistics as a possible new career path.
I write many forms of fiction and poetry also, but I have not been published yet. I also do much artwork as well! One day I will be published too.
