About Josh in his words
I am a superhero expert... yet I know almost nothing about conventional superheroes. At least, when compared to an actual expert.
My brother and best friend, Zach, is a true expert. He knows everything there is to know about superheroes, from the worlds they live in, to the writers and studios that created them.
Zach is also on the autistic spectrum.
I am a Superhero Expert is a look at autism from a new perspective. It describes the unique experience of growing up with an autistic older brother, while providing a glimpse into the challenges that autistic people often face and highlighting the indescribable beauty that autism can bring to siblings through the shared experience of two brothers.
Together, Zach and I have reached millions of people through our worldwide social media platform, The Stehle Bros. We have been featured on ABC News and The Art of Autism, and have partnered with many amazing autism foundations, including the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation, Integrate For Good, and more!
I am a Superhero Expert celebrates the unique perspective of an autistic individual. I have spent my life learning and growing alongside Zach. He has taught me more about life than any book, teacher, or life experience ever could.
Zach is my superhero.
And I am a superhero expert.
