Helping Teenagers with Special Needs

August 27, 2013, by

“In my early childhood, I was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome which is on the autistic spectrum. Hashem has given me perhaps more challenges than many other people. Hashem has also given me the commitment to overcome a lot of my challenges. I have also been able to use the confidence that I have gained as a result of my challenges to help others to overcome their own challenges. I have had the opportunity to mentor people with special needs in the Jewish community and that has been a very rewarding experience”
