Florida's First Choice for Autism Support

Hello, my name is Gage Sosso and this is my story. I was born on March 29th, 1995, in the great city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (go Steelers!). I lived there for about 10 years before moving to Florida. It was not until middle school that my life became more complicated. I always had certain issues that made me a bit different from the ‘normal’ crowd, but until then my family and all the doctors wrote it off as mere shyness and laziness. At age 15, I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, a high-functioning variant of autism. Asperger’s is something I have to deal with everyday, but I live with the philosophy of seeing myself as a person with autism, not an autistic person. I don’t let my disabilities define me. Besides having a few social quirks, I’m just your average guy whose interests include: reading, writing, video games, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Dragon Ball Z, watching YouTube videos, and much more. My first post coming up in just a couple of weeks will be a spotlight of my fellow Learning Academy students, and what it has been like for them growing up with Asperger’s. Everyone has a different story to tell and I’m excited to showcase that for you. I look forward to starting my newest adventure with this blog, and I hope you will all enjoy the content I provide!    – Gage
