Home > 13-14 Doudna Touring Events > David Finch, Author and Autism Speaker

Event Information

David Finch is a humorist and author of the acclaimed New York Times best-selling memoir, The Journal of Best Practices. Married in 2003 and diagnosed five years later with Asperger syndrome, David has committed himself to relentless self-improvement, sometimes to a comical extent. A former semiconductor engineer turned full-time writer and speaker, David has written for The New York Times, Huffington Post, and Slate, and he writes a relationship blog for Psychology Today. But his greatest accomplishment by far has been learning how to thrive as a family man.

David’s keynote address opens the 2013 EIU Autism Conference. For more information on conference events, go to

This program is presented as a partnership between the EIU Communication Disorders and Sciences Department and the Doudna Fine Arts Center.
