Sean Barron is a journalist for The Youngstown Vindicator in Ohio.

He is the co-author of two books about autism. There's a Boy in Here: Emerging from the Bonds of Autism was written with his mother, Judy Barron.[1] With Temple Grandin he co-authored Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships: Decoding Social Mysteries Through the Unique Perspectives of Autism.[2] He met his girlfriend, Barbara Protopapa, at one of his book signings.[3] Although diagnosed autistic at the age of 4, in 1965, he considers himself "healed" from autism, because it no longer adversely affects his day-to-day life. In 1992 he began to speak publicly at autism conferences about his experiences.[4][5]
