The Power of Possibilities Luncheon

Changing the game is a personal decision. The courage to take action comes from within us and is shaped by our ongoing life experiences. Anthony Ianni’s courage – against all odds – is game changing!

At the age of four, he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), a disorder on the Autism spectrum. His parents were told not to expect much: he may not graduate high school, he would never graduate from college, participating in athletics was unthinkable, and that living in a group institution was likely for his adult life.

Anthony Ianni SpeakerAt 24 years of age, Anthony Ianni is still changing the game. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Michigan State University. He is the first known athlete with autism to play Big 10 basketball, and helped his team win two Big 10 championships, a Big 10 tournament title, and was a member of the 2010 Final Four team. He has won several awards including the 2012 Unsung Player Award and was a finalist for the 2013 Detroit Pistons Community Game Changer Award.

Anthony continues to change the game by sharing his story and inspiring other to help those who face similar challenges.
