Tyler McNamer is an author and motivational speaker. Although he was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at the age of 2, he learned to overcome his challenges and embrace the unique perspective he could offer the world. It is this attitude that makes him a role model, particularly for those with autism or who may be perceived as being different.
Knowing that this viewpoint could help those who struggle with being different, Tyler decided to write a book to inspire others. At the age of 17, he published Population One: Autism, Adversity, and the Will to Succeed. This remarkable book details Tyler's life with autism while encouraging others to overcome their own challenges and accomplish their dreams.
Having emerged as an up-and-coming voice in the autism community, he entertains thousands of people at schools and organizations all over the country as a motivational speaker. He also provides content for his website Autismworks.com.
Since the writing of Population ONE, Tyler and his Dad have had the privilege of meeting thousands of people affected by autism. They have been touched by the heartfelt comments, and hundreds of thousands of "likes" of the Population ONE video.

"Your willingness to share your experiences are life changing to me. As a parent of a child with severe autism and an inclusion teacher, learning from you is better that any college class I have ever taken!!"
"When I first saw your program I was totally thrilled. Initially I was shocked but at some point realized that your and my experiences are very similar. I realize that the spectrum is infinite, with each person being unique, but I see Tyler and my son's IEP crossing at several points. That is the point where things started to fall into place for me. That was the point where clearer understanding arrived and excitement set in and all I could say was thank God for this program."
"Thank You for creating this program. My child has Autism and is highly functional. The public school failed him in First grade. He refused to do work. He could do it but refused. I worked with the school to create an IEP that now has him in a class that has only 6 kids. They feed him his breakfast, then he has PE outside for an hour. His teacher then starts the day of academics. He now loves his teacher and school. WHAT a change! Small class and a teacher who understands autism has been key. My hope is that my son will be able to take care of himself in society."
