Life after school

A little while ago I was interviewed by the ABC for an article about life after year 12 make sure you check it out.”I hid my autism diagnosis for four years – I felt ashamed of being different. When you go from primary school to secondary school you have to re-build everything from scratch, and change isn’t our strong suit, and being social isn’t really either. But I ended up building a very good network of friends. I basically just started telling people I’m proud to be on the autism spectrum. I’m proud to be different. My ultimate goal is a world that embraces autism and difference in general.”
Bryce Pace is a powerful advocate for people on the autism spectrum. You can read more of his story in this new feature from ABC News: https://goo.gl/RT5vYC

It is Time to Change

People wonder why parents are scared to send their autistic child to a mainstream school. This is a good example of why.. Schools are not treating students equally and prefer to abuse students on the spectrum rather than teach them. Please read and share this so that we can make people aware of what is happening inside Australia’s schools. It is time to change our ways and to treat all students with respect as this treatment is happening too often.

I am pleased to announce that I won the emerging leader category at the 2017 Victorian Disability Awards. These awards celebrate all the hard work that people do in advocating and providing services for people of different abilities in Victoria. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Victorian Student Representative Council for Nominating me for this award and everyone for your support over the past year. I would also like to thank the other finalists and nominees for the work you do to insure Victoria is inclusive for people of all abilities. These awards are not the end though as there is still a lot of work to do so let’s get out there and make this world a better place.Thanks

The Recharge Room

A few weeks ago, I was asked by Roger Holdsworth to write another article for the Connect Magazine. This time the article is about the Recharge room that was at the 2017 VicSRC Congress. I also discuss a little about how this room could be introduced into similar events. The article can be found at http://research.acer.edu.au/connect/vol2017/iss226/
