Autism Researcher

I’m an autistic academic. My current research about autistic parenthood is a new field of study.
Parenting Autistic  Children

 It is possible to be HAPPY

Looking at autism on the media and searching on the internet can leave parents of autistic children feeling frightened, unhappy and worried for the future.

There are so many fallacies and misconceptions all over the internet that it would be difficult to come away from that research not feeling like you are all doomed, your children will be forever unemployed and they need training to be ‘normal’ for them to have any hope.

I can help you see a different perspective about autism to the usual narrative. Autistic people can be happy.

Shona, huge thanks to you – and to all colleagues worldwide who are working so hard, with our allies  – to change that dreadful negative narrative around autism, & safeguard the lives of our young people.
