Parkside Centre], 82 Peel Close], Chingford E4


Austin is the senior practitioner of the charity AnnaKennedyonline and very much the 'go to man' when it comes to all things Autism related. As well as giving talks and training sessions across the Country in the AKO name, he heads up the advice and support side of the charity. With his own disabilities, including being on the spectrum, and 20 years hands on experience he has a wealth of knowledge and his own very special style of linking with audiences. A smile and some laughs along with a great deal of useful information is guaranteed.... and possibly the odd tear.
