Autism Fall Book Study: Population One By: Tyler McNamer
Face to Face & CANVAS Course

Discover the first hand account of a disability changed into extraordinary ability in this FALL AUTISM BOOK STUDY, as we read “Population One: Autism, Adversity, and the Will to Succeed” by Tyler McNamer.
About the Book:
Written by Tyler McNamer at the age of 17, Population One: Autism, Adversity, and the Will to Succeed is a groundbreaking book that offers readers the ability to see life through the eyes of a young man with autism.  Whether you are an educator, a family member of someone with autism, you'll appreciate the opportunity to step inside this remarkable young man 's mind.

About the Author:
Tyler was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2, he learned to overcome his challenges and embrace the unique perspective he could offer the world. It is this attitude that makes him a role model, particularly for those with autism or who may be perceived as being different. As Tyler puts it, I have been blessed with autism my entire life. I have chosen to accept my label of autism not as a disability, but as an extraordinary ability. Knowing that this viewpoint could help those who struggle with being different, Tyler decided to write a book to inspire others.
