He currently serves on the Executive Committee for the Kansas City League of Autistics (formerly ASAN-KC) and former interim president and board member of the Autism Society - the Heartland; his current advocacy efforts focus on improving healthcare outcomes for autistics and other neurodivergent individuals through advocacy and policy change, as well as improving communication and collaboration between the autism & autistic communities through the Greater Kansas City Autism Coalition (GKCAC).

In addition to his autistic advocacy, Spencer is a strong proponent of free/open-source assistive/accessible technology, presenting on topics including: inclusion of people with disabilities in the Linux community, how accessible and assistive technology would benefit from more Linux and open-source contributions, and how people with disabilities can be an asset for Linux and other open-source projects.
