CNN PRODUCER NOTE marcpulver, 54, of Key Biscayne, Florida, works in a restaurant and is proud of his biggest achievement: the publication of his book, "Living Life With Autism". 'I am most passionate about helping and inspiring others,' he says. 'This disease is not a dead end, only a road block. All they have to do is find a different road to take.' He would like to travel across the nation to give lectures to families that have autism and give them hope. 'I would like the world to know that it is just a setback and that you still can live a good, productive life. You just have to work a little harder than others to reach your goals and aspirations,' he says. He wants to help people reach their goals. 'My favorite thing is that knowing I have autism, when I reach a goal, it just makes it that much more rewarding because I have achieved it and did not let the fact that I have it stand in my way.'
