Mr. John Truitt

Founder & Chief Philanthropy Officer

Mr. Truitt was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, Dyslexia and other differences at age 45.
After a career spent in medical, dental and medical device start-ups, he created the On The Spectrum Foundation – a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to advocating Autism spectrum talents through self-discovery and social education. He now speaks professionally on these subjects and offers life coaching support for Adults with Asperger’s and learning differences.
He specializes in problem solving, identifying trends and blending unrelated concepts to create new offerings, programs and businesses. He has learned that while having Asperger’s comes with challenges it also gives him strengths, skills and unique insight that average team members often do not have.
He believes his differences have been instrumental in his successes. It was the discovery of how his ”Asperger’s works” that made him want to share its benefits with others on the spectrum.
