Living With Autism: Breaking Through Barriers

Benjamin Tarasewicz a young man with high-functioning autism who is making a positive impact on our community by educating his community on the challenges of living with autism. Benjamin is a precocious speaker who has created an hour long multi-media presentation entitled "Living With Autism: Breaking Through Barriers." A little less than a year ago, Benjamin gave the debut performance of his informative and inspiring presentation at his high school, and received a standing ovation from the audience of over 100 students, teachers, and others. He has since delivered his presentation to the Colorado Department of Education, the Colorado Special Education Advisory Council, and the University of Colorado’s Psi Chi Honors Psychology Club, among others. Benjamin’s efforts to educate the community about living with autism are already being recognized – last October he was honored by the Autism Society of Colorado with their “Compassionate Youth of the Year” award.
