Welcome to my first blog on Spire Autism. My name is Martin Slyngstad. I Would like to tell you more about myself as well as when to expect subsequent blogs.
I was diagnosed with autism at the age of five. This journey has not been easy – I would say it is like an uncharted road not knowing where the next turn will lead. It has been a roller coaster from the lack of support, to being bullied, and being nervous to ask for help. I feared being jeered.
There have also been great days doing the things I love to do – going to concerts, sporting events, doing photography and composing electronic dance music. Also releasing my book and being a public speaker, speaking in places like Dubai.
Whenever I have difficult days I listen to hard rock, hip-hop/rap, and all types of EDM which is short for electronic dance music which is music generated by loops and sounds on software. I have my first track releasing 9/1/23 with my instructor Danny F (link down below to pre-save). One of the things I like to do is photography which to me is like telling a story through my eyes. I also enjoy, on occasion, playing golf – although this can be a frustrating sport – it takes patience. It’s fun when you go to the driving range and work on hitting balls in a relaxing environment.
Lastly, the greatest thing I like to do is exercise at the gym. When I feel stressed lifting weights helps with the stress off me – often going as quick as long as needed. Exercise is a great stress reliever to me. I know things are going well but I don’t know what will happen in the future I just have to keep my eye on the road and navigate this uncharted road.
I’d like to tell you when to expect blogs and various topics. When it comes to releasing blogs, it will be dependent on me getting work and school assignments done early enough. I’ll be discussing my book ‘Chatterbox’ as well- dissecting each chapter and providing the reasoning behind it.
I would like to end it with a quote I wrote. “We are like a flower waiting to bloom into something beautiful. When it rains, that essence of life gives up hope that we will blossom at the right time.”
Thank you so much for checking out Spire Autism And stay tuned for upcoming dates and announcements. now here is a link to my first track with my instructor, and link to my book for those who want to check it out.

    As the father of an autistic son(3 years), your work inspires, and encourages us. You constantly remind us that the limits are endless. I’m excited have a glimpse into your journey and witness all that lies before you. Keep up the good work because you’ll never know how truly impactful you’ve been and will be.
