Stephen Mark Shore (born September 27, 1961) is an autistic professor of special education at Adelphi University.[1] He has written the books that include: College for Students with Disabilities,[2] Understanding Autism for Dummies,[3] Ask and Tell,[4] and Beyond the Wall.[5] Currently, he serves on the board of Autism Speaks,[6] and is one of the first two autistic board members in its history, looking to improve the potential of those on the autism spectrum.[7] He once headed the Asperger's Association of New England and was on the board of the Autism Society of America.[1]

Shore lost language skills before the age of four, then started getting them back at four years old. He supported taking mercury out of vaccines.[8] He has been described as having a special interest in music. He has discussed difficulties with completing assignments presented in formats that he wasn't used to, leading him to drop out of a doctorate in music program. However, he eventually obtained a doctorate in Special Education.[9]

His book, Ask and Tell, describes ways that autistics can advocate for their needs.[10]
