Teen with Asperger’s Syndrome Creates Lovable & Unique Creatures. Says It’s OK To Be Different

What are Buhdeedoo? They are fun, lovable and unique creatures who live on Buhdeedoo Island. Let us introduce you to the different types in this first in a series book. Come see for yourself what the Buhdeedoo (Boo-d-do) are all about! Learn about the different abilities and specialties that each type of Buhdeedoo has, and see how they work together to help each other keep Buhdeedoo Island a safe and happy place. Each and every one plays and important role, no matter how big or small they may be.

Alex Smaniotto, the creator and illustrator of the Buhdeedoo is a young man with Asperger’s Syndrome. He has used that to his advantage by showing that just because a person is “labeled” as special needs doesn’t mean that they can’t be a valued and productive member of society. As Alex puts it “I embrace my Asperger’s rather than look at it as a disability. Being different is OK, and no one should be ashamed of that.”  In addition to creating the Buhdeedoo, Alex has his own YouTube channel under the name of AlexTeh1337GamerDood where he does game reviews and game plays. His mother Dorothy says “if everybody were the same, life would be boring. Look at everyone around you and embrace their unique abilities and talents.” In addition, she adds “if you read my first book The Burgundy Journey: Using Hope, Humor & Faith To Conquer Adversity. No Matter What, you will get a feel as to what Alex has gone through in his young life.”
