NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — At about 6 years old, Matthew Kenslow was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a mild form of autism. Throughout his life, Kenslow said he has faced challenges making friends, managing social interactions and bullying.

Now as an adult, Kenslow has been sharing his experiences to help others better understand people with a similar diagnosis through social media and his book on Amazon, “Juggling the Issues: Living With Asperger’s Syndrome.”
