“John not only has an extraordinary insight into his own autism, he has the ability to articulate it superbly well. I would recommend him as a speaker to anyone who has any contact with a person on the spectrum.” Luke Beardon, Senior Lecturer in Autism at Sheffield Hallam University.

“Your training was by far the most informative and effective session I’ve ever had on any aspect of special educational needs provision.” Headteacher of a large UK secondary school.

“Just want to say such a big thank you for Wednesday.  I can honestly say it is the most positive training day I’ve ever experienced.  It’s the first time I’ve come out of such a day feeling empowered and above all filled with much hope for the future of my boys. As a group we will most certainly be asking you back.” Parent Support Group (Parent of 3 autistic boys)

“I am extremely grateful that my expectations were certainly fulfilled and your style and interaction helped me enormously.” (Individual on the autistic spectrum)
