Anna had this to say after the show:

Another information packed ‘All things Autism in Essex ‘ with Aston Avery in February.

Our guests were Dean Kelly an inspirational gentleman I met on Social Media. Dean was born in a medical negligent home birth in 1965 which resulted in Dean been given a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy.

Dean shares he has never been one to let the grass grow under his feet and rest on his laurels and became SN British Judo Champion Medallist in 2009. He is now currently rewriting his autobiography called ‘Natural Born Fighter’ and is embarking on a new path as a motivational speaker calling his presentation ‘Lets chat about Cerebral Palsy’.

Our second guest is Founder and CEO of Training2Care UK Glenn Knight. The AnnaKennedyonline charity has worked with Training2 Care in the past. This was with the Autism Reality Experience 5 years ago at Brunel University , Heathrow Airport and First Responders in Basildon. Glen talked about how the last 2 years have impacted on his business and now exciting times are ahead now with new projects including the ‘Talk to Care’ App.

Anna also shared how she received a surprising message from the US. More news to follow soon……
Looking forward to our next show in March sharing more news, tips and advice ‘Talking All things Autism in Essex’.

Stay Safe and Well.

Anna and Aston would like to wish our charity Ambassadors Giulian Wheater, Harvey Price and charity supporter Alison Dawes Knowles the best of luck at The National Diversity Awards.
