EPISODE 32: The First Division-I Athlete with Autism: Go Spartans

With guest Anthony Ianni

 

INTRODUCTION:

Hey, everyone! Thanks for joining My Autism Tribe. Today’s episode features Anthony Ianni, the first Division-I athlete with Autism and one of the most sought-after anti-bullying motivational speakers, and for good reason. His story is a powerful one. And as always, if you’re enjoying our podcast, please rate and review us wherever you listen to podcasts, and share with a friend. That’s how we make our voice stronger. Thanks for listening!

 

SEGMENT:

Bullying is a very real and serious problem that affects all ages, ethnic backgrounds, everybody. However, individuals with disabilities, such as autism, are one of the prime targets for bullies.

Our guest today is very familiar with bullying, because he was a victim, Anthony Ianni, of the Michigan Department of Civil Rights. His story is so inspiring. Anthony played with the legendary coach Tom Izzo while at Michigan State University as the very first Division-I athlete with autism. I can’t wait for everyone to hear his story. Let’s give a warm welcome to the newest member of My Autism Tribe, Anthony Ianni.

 

CONCLUSION:

Anthony repeatedly delivers a consistent message wherever he goes, with whomever he is speaking with, and that is that those on the autism spectrum have the same dreams, desires and goals as anybody else. Anthony’s family made a pledge they would help Anthony be successful no matter what. Well done, Greg and Jaime. We’re so proud of your son Anthony. Thanks for being a part of My Autism Tribe, and I’ll see you next week!
