diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome when I was 3
I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome when I was 3 years old. I am 22 now. It has been nearly 4 years since I moved to Ocala from Long Island, New York. OaSN has really helped me establish a new and better life here in Ocala. Through this amazing organization, I have formed new relationships, including meeting my current girlfriend of 7 months. I also met and am continuing to exercise with a personal trainer, Rob LaSalle, who specializes in individuals with challenges like mine. Karen Vega at OaSN also recommended me to become a board member at CARD in Gainesville, through which I then attended the 2013 CARD Conference. This conference allowed me to learn a lot of information about my Autism, which has greatly improved my understanding of myself. Overall, OaSN is doing a great service for the community. They have really helped me and continue to do so.
