Nick Turziano is a 14-year-old boy who happens to have autism. He is from Wheeling, WV and will be entering into 9th grade in the fall. His parents knew there was something different about Nick when he was little, but he was not diagnosed with autism until he was seven years old. Nick plays hockey, soccer, and is learning to play tennis. He volunteers all over town, gets good grades, has a summer job, and has been able to make a difference in the autistic community. Nick says his greatest accomplishment is earning the rank of Eagle Scout at only 14 years old.
