The Advisory Team
Our advisors are all people with learning disabilities who make sure we are on the right track with this project.
I have Autistic Spectrum Disorder. I love trains, WWE, and of course Classic 80s TV Shows -Airwolf, Knight Rider and The A Team.
I was a Research Assistant at the OU, and I worked on a project that made an online digital archive for people with learning disabilities.
I have also co-chaired several meetings at my local learning disability centre.
I also volunteer at a Charity shop and have done for the last 2 years.
