My work and writing combines my personal insights with my professional reflections, and provides safe opportunities for people to challenge their perceptions of what being Autistic is like and find our shared humanity. I am one of the directors of Autism Wellbeing CIC and I'm researching how autism is perceived for my PhD. I enjoy writing my autism and wildlife blogs and I set up and run a local wildlife Facebook group. I ride a motorcycle, play several musical instruments (but not at the same time!) and I love nature and the outdoors. I'm delighted to be able to share my personal, family and professional experience of autism with people. www.undercoverautism.org www.offdowntherabbithole.org www.autismwellbeing.org.uk If you'd like to buy me a coffee, please visit: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/Milknosugar
