Amanda – Interim Chair Stephanie – Interim Vice Chair Parent of an autistic 12-year-old, governor in a special school and trustee in a charity breaking down attitudinal barriers regarding disability. A TV News Editor for 15 years, I am now studying therapeutic counselling in order to empower carers Mike What equips me to represent you is my background in the charity world, and as daddy to a son diagnosed on the autism spectrum, I have experience (like you I daresay) of the steep, unending learning curve such a diagnosis puts you on.
