Daniel Wendler

Daniel Wendler is a social skills expert… with Asperger’s syndrome.

As a child, Daniel suffered from bullying, social isolation and depression. But after being diagnosed with Asperger’s in high school, Daniel started studying social skills the way one might study a foreign language. His study paid off, and Daniel began to make friends and experience the power of community.
