Harold “Hackie” Reitman, M.D. is the founder and president of the 501(C)3 nonprofit Different Brains Inc., the only place where intellectual and developmental differences (like autism, dyslexia, ADHD, and down syndrome), mental health challenges (such as bipolar or anxiety) and neurological issues (such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, strokes, and Traumatic Brain Injuries) all converge under one positive roof. Through its website, the organization utilizes videos, blogs, podcasts and more – all accessible free of charge – to support neurodiversity, from autism to Alzheimer’s and all brains in between!

Dr. Reitman is a retired orthopaedic surgeon, a former professional heavyweight boxer (who donated every purse from his 26 professional matches to children’s charities), an independent filmmaker, and the past chairman and present board member of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Broward County. He is also the author of the book “Aspertools: A Practical Guide for Understanding and Embracing Asperger’s, Autism Spectrum Disorders and Neurodiversity” (released by HCI Books, publishers of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series), and the writer and producer of the full-length independent film, The Square Root of 2 starring Darby Stanchfield of ABC’s hit show “Scandal.” The movie was inspired by the experiences of his own daughter Rebecca, and her perseverance over adversity. The journey from book to movie was detailed in his documentary “Asperger’s, Autism and The Square Root of 2: A Neurodiversity Documentary.”

In 2016 Hackie was given the award for Significant Contributions in Development from AASCEND (Autism Asperger Spectrum Coalition for Education Networking and Development). Separate from Different Brains, Hackie is the founder and CEO of PCE Media, a media production company focusing on reality based content. He recently co-executive produced the documentary “Foreman”, the definitive feature documentary on legendary boxer and pitchman George Foreman.
