Robbie Messer was born on August 17th, 1999. He was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3.
Early intervention, a supportive family, and hard work helped shape Robbie into someone who became successful academically and socially. In his sophomore year, Robbie coordinated an Autism Day at his high school and created a video to help others understand it better.
It was a great success across the school district, and Autism Day was held again in his junior and senior years. Robbie’s “Autism Quest” carries on to be an autism advocate and create awareness by sharing his experience with you.REGISTER HERE
