DJ is an alternatively communicating autistic poet, essayist, and self-advocate and the writer and co-producer of the documentary Deej, which follows six years of his life from high school to college. Awarded a Peabody for its “inclusive filmmaking,” Deej is a groundbreaking film that demonstrates exactly why access to inclusive, literacy-based classrooms and alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) are vital for autistic people.  

DJ is an alum of ASAN’s Autistic Scholars and Autism Campus Inclusion (ACI) programs. He is currently a Youth Fellow at Open Society Foundations/Human Rights Initiative, where he works to make literacy-based education, communication rights, and inclusive lives available to all. His poetry and essays have been published in multiple journals and books, including his recently published chapbook A Doorknob for the Eye (Unrestricted Interest Press). We look forward to hearing from DJ at our annual gala and hope that you can come celebrate with us!

 

More honorees and speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
