Better Speakers & Toast to Your Health Present: Taylor Clark Duncan.
Taylor, autistic, but a celebrity. Taylor is on a journey across North America with the aim of delivering 100 speeches in 100 days to raise awareness. He got an overwhelming response and is not booking any more.
Taylor Duncan founded Alternative Baseball® in 2016. Diagnosed with autism at age 4, Taylor is at the forefront of raising awareness and spreading the message on the importance of inclusion for those with autism and other disabilities. Growing up, he often wasn’t allowed to play baseball due to preconceived notions of persons with autism. Undeterred, Taylor improved his technique by working with some of the best players in baseball and slowpitch softball. Today, Taylor’s organization is comprised of 75+ teams in 30+ states and growing across America; with future aspirations for international expansion. The organization enables teens and adults on the spectrum and with other disabilities to strive to break barriers and change perceptions through the authentic baseball experience.
Taylor’s contributions were recognized through House Resolution 1420 by the Georgia House of Representatives. In addition, he was awarded the J.B. Hawkins Humanitarian Award by the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame at the 2019 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in Macon, Georgia. Taylor has also been recognized as a “Community Hero” by the Atlanta Braves organization, in addition to being highlighted in segments on ESPN, NBC’s TODAY, CNN/HLN, Sports Illustrated, among many local, regional, and national media outlets across America. He’s also spoken at a TEDx conference on the importance of inclusion of those with disabilities in and outside of athletics.
