The hardships and quirks of the autistic spectrum
School life, learning environments, teachers
Volunteering / autism activism empowerment
On average my speeches last 30-60 minutes (depending on the depth required). I tend to speak about the challenges that come with having Asperger's and will end with by talking about why I see my disability as a gift and my achievements; so the speech ends on a real high.
Overall, I want to give a positive and inspirational message.
Every speech is tailored to the specific requirements of the audience with appropriate 'inserts' added where necessary.
For instance, recently I added 'inserts' about Gaslighting, Bullying, PTSD, Health and Social Care, Inspiration, Volunteering and Discrimination.
I am available to speak at any event you wish, as I am comfortable with speaking in front of hundreds of people
(ironically the more people, the more comfortable I am!)
