Discover what’s possible when education is measured beyond grades.
Michael Gilberg is an autistic special education and disability rights attorney based in New York and Connecticut. Growing up with undiagnosed Asperger’s Syndrome, he offers his clients a level of insight and empathy that is unique to his personal experience.
In today’s conversation, we discuss:
- Michael’s lack of educational services as a child
- What he’s learned about friendship
- Misconceptions about autism
- Feeling stuck between autistic and neurotypical
- The challenge of defining what “normal” means
- The right to an appropriate education
