Married in 2003 and diagnosed five years later with Asperger syndrome, David has committed himself to relentless self-improvement, sometimes to a comical extent. A former semiconductor engineer turned full-time writer and speaker, David has written for The New York Times, Huffington Post, Slate, and he writes a relationship blog for Psychology Today. But his greatest ...

David Finch has the rare qualities of not only being a great writer, but also a great speaker. He came to give a book talk, but instead, held an audience captive with a deeply moving personal story.

He described the day-to-day challenges of living with an autism spectrum disorder, weaving in humorous and heartwarming details of how he and his wife saved their marriage and built a life together.

Janet E. Farmer, Ph.D., ABPP, Professor and Director of Academic Programs - Thompson Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders, University of Missouri-Columbia

He speaks with candor about his experience being diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at age 30, already married & with a young daughter, & somehow managed to "find the funny" in even the most difficult of circumstances navigating the world of neurotypicals.

We had David come to speak to therapists & educators in our community. I have been a therapist for over 15 years & I have never understood Asperger's more than after hearing David's experience w/ it firsthand.
