Paul Louden was born in 1983. He was diagnosed with Asperger’s, which may now be considered a subset of autism spectrum disorder, at the age of 23. He has been speaking about his views and life experiences as co-host of the Understanding Autism radio show and at autism conferences since late 2010. His young life was spent visiting and living in many different countries, and this has given him the opportunity to see a variety of cultures and helps him to think about and speak about his condition from a unique perspective. He currently resides in Houston, TX.
