Karen & I Got to Speak to 80 6th Graders About Neurodiversity, Understanding and Accepting

Uncategorized Feb 25, 2019

 The Autism Society of Colorado received a message from a sixth grade student at St Mary's Academy in Englewood CO. She asked if we could make a presentation to their sixth grade to help them understand autism and how to reduce bullying of students on the autism spectrum. While Karen and I focus on the adult community, this sounded fun and would be great practice presenting to a very different audience.

 As I expected a classroom of sixth graders does have some differences from presenting to adults. The students seemed to enjoy the presentation and there was definitely interest in the subject. We even had a few of them come up and ask additional questions.


My biggest take away is the openness and interest in autism in this age group. We came to learn there is a student being bullied for some possibly autistic traits. There are 2 amazing girls who have told the bullies to back off and wanted the rest of the class to understand better. Kudos to these bold 2...

Cornell University IRL College Neurodiversity class lecture Fall 2018

Uncategorized Dec 03, 2018

I once again did a guest lecture session for Cornell University’s Neurodiversity course. Due to the traveling I was doing I was unavailable during the timeslot for the topic I presented last year. Professor Bruyere was very kind as always to fit me into a different class session which meant a shift in topic. The new subject was challenges the neurodiverse have with preparing for and taking a job interview. This was a great fit as I not only had my extensive personal experience, but was also able to draw on a large amount of input from the people on the hiring side I had interviewed for my book “Geeks Guide to Interviews: 15 Critical Items for the Tech Type”

 Teaching this class is my favorite speaking opportunity for a few reasons. Cornell is not very far from where I grew up, so there is a satisfaction from that angle. Professor Bruyere has helped me with advice, suggestions, insight from her amazing work and papers so I appreciate the opportunity to...

Facebook Live interview of Tim Goldstein by Julie Hornok, Aug 2018

Uncategorized Aug 10, 2018

Amazing the people you meet on LinkedIn and the ability it give you to connect to others with the same interests.

While Julie is primarily focused on the childhood phase of spectrum life and mine on the adult, job seeking phase, She convinced me there would be a lot of value in explaining some of my work in how this particular aspie thinks and how that would help parents better understand what drives some of the behaviors. Once you understand why we see things a certain way, it is much easier to change the course of interactions.

Autism Speaks promo lead to being interviewed for Everyday Health

 I never fail to be amazed how the universe seems to make things happen when you are willing to step out boldly and not stop.

Autism Speaks did a world mosaic to which you could add your picture and a few lines about yourself and autism. I put my story and a video in the mosaic. Months later I was contacted by Autism Speaks asking if I would be interested in being interviewed by a journalist for Everyday Health as an adult with autism.

Had a fun time being interviewed and waiting impatiently for the article to come out.

Click on the photo above or THIS LINK to see my tile and video.

I will update this with the article once it is published.
