Aaron Likens is an award-winning public speaker and author of Finding Kansas: Living and Decoding Asperger’s Syndrome.

When he was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome at age 20, Aaron Likens began collecting his thoughts and experiences on paper–the highs, the lows, the challenges, and the unexpected joys. What he found was hope – not only for himself, but also for others with Asperger’s.

Now a sought-after speaker and blogger, he is passionate about sharing his insights into this often-misunderstood condition. He was the 2012 recipient of the Missouri Champions of Mental Health Award, and in 2013 he received the Youth Leadership Award for the state of Missouri. Since 2010, Aaron has given more than 600 presentations to more than 54,000 students, teachers, parents, police officers and professionals nationwide.

Aaron works as an ongoing autism ambassador with Easterseals Crossroads and other Easterseals affiliates across the United States.
