Alex Magnussen

Alexander brings his humor, honesty and style to his presentations, which includes a TEDx talk earlier this year. He is a 28 year old man who has Autism, and his message during his presentations is to showcase that with the right support and early intervention, people who live with Autism can realize in themselves that they are smart and can find their niche in the world.

Alexander has a unique ability to communicate what it feels like to have Autism in a in a way that is understandable to people who don’t have Autism – he is able to explain what the world is like and how it feels to him. In this way, Alexander is a “bridge” – he can connect the world of Autism to the world without Autism is a comprehensible way.

The way Alexander brings you on a journey during his time on stage is both remarkable and wonderful. As an audience member you learn the value of what he has to say in a storytelling, engaging and often humorous way.
