Many people in the nerd and convention communities are diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, which includes more severe cases of autism as well as higher functioning Asperger Syndrome. At NC Comicon: Oak City 2017, I sat down with Aaron Busse (AKA Something Different Cosplay), and local NC writer Zack Smith to discuss our experiences living with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, what draws people with autism to video games, fandoms and conventions, and advice for overcoming its challenges.
