    Centered - Autism, Basketball and One Athlete's Dream

    Presented by Anthony Ianni


    Don’t let others determine who you will be!  Anthony Ianni is a motivational speaker, author, and former star basketball player for the Michigan State Spartans.

    Ianni proved a lot of authorities wrong. At age of four, he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), which is on the Autism Spectrum (ASD). Doctors and specialists told Ianni’s parents that he would barely graduate from high school, would never graduate from college, would never have a shot at being an athlete, and would likely live in a group institution with other Autistic kids for his adult life. His family was devastated but pledged they would help Anthony be successful no matter what.

    Since then, Ianni has had a successful academic and athletic basketball career as an MSU Spartan, including a two-time Big Ten Champion, a Big Ten Tournament Champion, and a member of the 2010 Final Four Team. He also won the 2011 Tim Bograkos Walk On award and the 2012 Unsung Player award.

    His message? Never give up on your dreams. In his talks, Ianni also talks about bullying in the workplace and school, and raises awareness about Autism. He is the author of the forthcoming book, Centered – Autism, Basketball and One Athlete’s Dream, available now for pre-order on Amazon.
