I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome when I was 11 years old. I had already encountered difficulties with my schooling which was further accentuated at secondary school. Sympathetic, well-intentioned teachers tried to help. Sadly their knowledge of the condition was not sufficient and I had to devise my own survival strategy.

I now want to educate others about the condition in order to allow them to understand it better and thus help those with the condition to have happier, more productive lives.
