Here are some examples of feedback from people who have heard Paul speak.
"Paul was one of the most inspirational speakers I have heard and all the
parents felt the same."
"I really feel that all my staff need to hear him talk. He has such an
incredible insight into his own challenges and to be able to vocalise this
is so helpful for us as teachers.I would really like Paul to speak to our staff so that they also have the opportunity to learn about the challenges many of our pupils are probably having and are not able to vocalise."
"I feel all teachers who are working with young people on the autistic
spectrum should gain the experience and knowledge that Paul can offer."
His first book "Living Through The Haze" has been widely praised by professionals including Professor Tony Attwood and Dr Michelle Garnett. Paul continues to present speeches, training and consultancy as well as publishing books.
This is his message
"Do not fear people with Autism, embrace them, Do not spite people with Autism unite them, Do not deny people with Autism accept them for then their abilities will shine"
