John Hall – I am still autistic.
As a toddler, John Hall lived in his own private world, flipping light switches, banging pans and avoiding eye contact. Today, he is the CEO of a national education management firm based in Southern California. Defying his initial “low-functioning autistic” diagnosis, he pushed himself through elementary, high school, and college, earned an MBA, and was even awarded a Doctorate. He is also a father of two children, one who also has autism.
John was severely impaired for many years and with the help of Dr. O. Ivar Lovaas and the dogged determination of his mother, John was able to get the treatments and training he needed to be able to cope with the world.
