Autism Light: Jim St. Leger

Jim St. Leger works as the Technology Marketing Manager for Intel in California. His son Schuyler has autism.  Jim St. Leger is an Autism Light because of his advocacy and motivational speaking that help people understand autism.  


Here is a video of a dynamic presentation on autism by Jim St. Leger that is found on YouTube. The presentation is called Surprise! Your Child Has Autism. Now What!

 

Jim St. Leger and his son Schuyler were also involved in the Hacking Autism event on October 11, 2011, where people are brainstorming ideas to create apps for smart phones and the iPad that have the potential help those with autism.  There idea was to use a smart phone’s camera to assist children with autism to improve their comprehension of facial expressions on others.  Jim St. Leger said, “Children on the Autism spectrum, including my son, have a very difficult time understanding what you and I would take for granted with social cues, including a person smiling or frowning (Source).”   A blog is written about Jim and his son at Digital Scriber.
