My Autism & Me
Sixteen year old Rosie King first hit the headlines in the UK when she accurately diagnosed her own Asperger's Syndrome at age nine. Appearing on local news to promote her mother's children's book, she was spotted by BBC for her camera-friendly ease, and asked to present one of their special programs, My Autism and Me which went on to receive a BAFTA nomination, a Royal Television Society Award and an International EMMY award.
King is a Young Ambassador for the National Autistic Society, and a champion individuality. Her inspiration to make a difference comes from the fact that her younger brother and sister are both severely affected by autism.
King was asked to speak for TEDMED at the JFK Center in Washington DC last year, and received a standing ovation as well as a week long stint on TED.COM, where her talk has now been viewed well over a million times.
Rosie King loves to write, and typically has several pieces of fiction in the works at any given time. She is planning to write a book about life with her family within the next year.
