Autism and addiction, two words rarely combined but a mixture that can lead to immense challenge. Dylan Dailor discusses the challenges he faces daily as someone living with Autism and, advocating for the neurodiverse.
Dylan Dailor attends Hobart College and lives in Rochester, NY. He is a neurodiversity advocate and the author of the children’s book I Am Not a Freak. Much of his time is spent in the pursuit of finding new and innovative ways to describe the autism spectrum to a wide variety of people which is the topic of the second book that he is writing. In his free time, he enjoys composing, playing, and conducting music, arguing with anyone who will argue with him, and watching too much TV for his own good. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
