On Monday night at 8pm, be sure to tune in for our newest episode of Hope Saves the Day on Autism Radio Tonight's Show is with Host Paul Cimins Interview with Ryan Mctavish
Ryan McTavish was born in Waterloo Ontario Canada and live there to this day. Basically I was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism (PDD-NOS/Aspergers) at the age of 5. It has effected mostly my social interactions, I can make friends, but cant keep them, because I tend to get very anxious while talking to them on Facebook because I cant understand their emotions when Im not talking face to face. When I was younger, I had many obsessions with strange things, like bagpipes and the Disney movie "Pinocchio". Because of my poor social interaction, I have been "bullied" by people, or teased, simply because at the time, they were young and could not understand what Autism was and why I was acting "different" from other people. I also do alot of stimming, like rocking or flicking my fingers. I also laugh constantly.
