Growing up, Mitchell Roberts always knew he was different.
He had a particular way of interacting with others, and a colourful way of thinking.
“I never really considered myself that normal. You just know when you’re kind of different, like cognitively, you really do. It’s a prevalent thing, it affects every facet of your life, so you know,” the 25-year-old University of Calgary student says.
Roberts was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome (AS) a type of autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) most commonly affecting social functions.
