Living with High-Functioning Autism

“The real world is built for neurotypical people, built for a very specific way of wiring of a human being.”

“A lot of people on the Autism spectrum and the related ones like dyspraxia and dyslexia think visually and visually-conceptually or artistically or something like that they need higher reasoning for something they need more engagement on something they need the room of the incredible intellect they have stored.” – Jason Edgecombe

Jason enjoys making wooden swords, “you put a sword in a kids hand and suddenly feel powerful.” 

Jason is a husband, father, gamer, business owner, a martial artist who considers himself a “Mighty Warrior called to shine light into the darkness.”

Always considered an oddball for his passion regarding gaming and fantasy role play, a diagnosis of high-functioning autism in his 20s helped everything fall into place and his passion for video gaming helped him find his tribe. Now to help others avoid the same rejection he suffered as a child, Jason is using his beloved gaming to welcome kids to the tribe it took him his whole life to find.
