I am available to speak and answer questions about Asperger’s Syndrome to any interested groups and organisations, either in person or via Skype. My talks come from my personal experience of having Asperger’s and how it has impacted me in different areas of life. I am able to supply listeners with a deeper understanding of the condition, and talk about the best ways to work and communicate with people with Asperger’s, and give helpful answers to specific questions.

In my talks I am always very open, honest, and accurate in what I say. Being a deep and analytical thinker with a sharp memory means that I can analyse the difficulties that people with Asperger’s face. I can effectively represent and speak on behalf of those people who simply struggle socially, people who may try very hard to mix in, but somehow have little success, and can convey the thoughts and feelings such people are likely to have in difficult situations.
I am a confident and eloquent speaker. One of my achievements at school was in achieving an A in GCSE English Language, and I was marked as an A* for the speaking and listening element. This may have been due to the fact that I communicated with adults far more than my peers in my childhood years, and developed my language skills from them.
Whilst I am open to speaking to any interested groups that would like to learn more about Asperger’s Syndrome, I have for the sake of simplicity categorised my talks into four sections.
- Talks Related to Education
- Talks Related to Employment
- Talks Related to Social or Care Work
- Talks Related to Social Skills Development
Please visit the most relevant page for more information on the issues I will speak on. Some of my past talks have taken the form of question and answer sessions, with the questions given to me in advance. This has proved to be very effective as it enables me to think about my answers in depth. However I am perfectly happy to answer questions from the floor too.
