  • I am an amazing drummer!
  • I am kind.
  • I am great at remembering names.
  • I am a good photographer.
  • I know a lot about planes.

How best to support me?

  • I love music and always keep my iPod near. If I’m unhappy and you let me sit and listen to it I will be happier.
  • I am autistic, so I see, hear and feel the world differently to most people.
  • It helps me if I know what is going to happen.
  • If there is a surprise that you can’t tell me about, it may help to let me sit somewhere quietly while I get used to it.
