About Dr. Stephen

Stephen Mark Shore (born September 27, 1961) is an autistic professor of special education at Adelphi University. He has written the books that include: College for Students with Disabilities, Understanding Autism for Dummies, Ask and Tell, and Beyond the Wall.  Currently, he serves on the board of Autism Speaks, and is one of the first two autistic board members in its history, looking to improve the potential of those on the autism spectrum. He once headed the Asperger's Association of New England and was on the board of the Autism Society of America.[1]

Shore lost language skills before the age of four, then started getting them back at four years old. He supported taking mercury out of vaccines.  He has been described as having a special interest in music. He has discussed difficulties with completing assignments presented in formats that he wasn't used to, leading him to drop out of a doctorate in music program. However, he eventually obtained a doctorate in Special Education.

His book, Ask and Tell, describes ways that autistics can advocate for their needs.
