Testimonials

“I’ve known Alec Frazier for four years now, both as a friend and co-worker, and Alec is a superb and intelligent friend and co-worker. Whenever I need things done, I can go to Alec, and get a thorough and clear final product. Also equally important, when an idea or project can be improved, Alec provides concise, clear and valuable feedback. Alec has a wonderful sense of humor, and a diverse skill set that makes him able to provide input on everything from policy to photography. Alec is also an accomplished writer and presenter, having published his term paper, and presented at several major conferences. Alec Frazier is an asset to anyone who would have him working with them.”

“Alec Frazier is one of the most intelligent and thoughtful people I know. He has worked tirelessly as an advocate with and for people with autism for many years now, and his advocacy comes from his personal experience of living with autism. As he has made clear to me on several occasions, “There are as many types of autism as there are people with autism. Neurotypicals tend to lump us all together, but each of us have our own unique experience and our unique ways of perceiving the world. We cannot be all lumped together under one category.” He despises the romanticized view of autism promoted by movies such as “Rain Man” or the TV show “St. Elsewhere’s” and hates any suggestion that he or others with autism need to be patronized. Most impressive of all is his conviction that most people with autism are perfectly capable of advocating on their own behalf, and they do not need neurotypicals to do advocacy on their behalf. He is an extremely impressive individual (and also a helluva lot of fun).”
