Navigating a life with Autism can feel easier when someone offers humor and a new perspective. Dylan Volk is an inspiring beacon to help you find your way. Dylan Volk is the author of “Bad Choices Make Good Stories: My Life with Autism”, a sequel to the book he co-authored with his father, “Chasing the Rabbit: A Dad’s Life Raising a Son on the Spectrum”. After years of what his parents called “the diagnosis of the month club,” Dylan was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at the age of eight. Life has been challenging for Dylan. When he was little, he struggled with how to learn rules and follow directions that often didn’t make sense to him. As he got older, he was challenged, especially socially, by a world that often seemed to go too fast for him. Even today at 27 years old­­­­­, Dylan works hard to get through each day. Dylan is pursuing his dreams by making people laugh, helping them see the world in a very different way and traveling around the country sharing his story to thousands of people. He hopes the work and presentations about his books are helping families as they navigate through the complexities of living life on the autism spectrum.
