Kirby Wurts is the impetus behind Autism Village. After Kirby was diagnosed with autism at 18 months old, his extended family and friends embraced autism as a way of life. They’ve done everything they can to help Kirby but they’ve also looked for ways to help others living “on the spectrum". Kirby loves Thomas and Friends, camping with his all autistic Scout troop, and wearing lots of hats at once. He also loves the French fries he gets at VIP Pizza & Pasta.
