Robbie Clark, Author / Public Speaker / Autism Advocate
In My Words: Stories of an Autistic Boy is Robbie's debut. Robbie started working on In My Words after graduating from Grissom High School in 2012. During Robbie's senior year he was getting asked a lot "What are you going to do after school?". This lead to the idea of Robbie writing a book about his journey to this point. This book is the telling of stories. Through the written word of Robbie, he will share stories about growing up as a boy who has autism. Stories about teachers, friends, bullies and family. He will share his frustrations, curiosity, sadness, as well as his moments of pure joy and love. The stories in this book will touch all the emotions and ensure that what you say and do to others does make an impact. Robbie's perseverance to not be different, to achieve, and to not give up will be told in his own words page after page. You will also get some insight from his mother, father and sister as they share a few of their own stories.
