Anthony Ianni

Award-winning speaker, author, and former Michigan State basketball player

At the age of 4, Anthony was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder, which is on the Autism Spectrum. Doctors said he was unlikely to do the things he and his family dreamed of – to go to college, be an athlete, and live independently. Anthony was determined to change that outlook, working hard with the support of family, teachers, and coaches. He went on to attend and play basketball at Grand Valley State, then Michigan State, where he was part of a team that won two Big Ten Championships. Today, he has pledged his life and career to help those who face similar challenges, telling his story across the country.
