Many parents try to "understand" their autistic children. I know, because my parents tried to do the same with me. Attempting to understand, is a futile task. Where you need to be, is on the road to acceptance and understanding so your autistic child can bloom! When you ditch negative biases toward autism, accept and nurture your autistic child's talents - wonderful things will happen, like they did for me. Jude Morrow

Jude presented to staff in my school and to a group of students and their parents afterwards. The feedback we received was so positive. People were blown away with his honesty and openness about the struggles he faced and how hard he worked to focus on the positives. His talk portrays such an inspiring life. I have heard Jude speak on three occasions and every time I have taken something new from his words. A truly remarkable story of self-acceptance and positivity. Thank you Jude

Founder of Different Brains
We recently had a talk by Jude at our family centre where we provide alternative respite for children and teenagers with a disability and /or autism.
The feedback was fantastic. from the audience. This included staff who work with autistic children, parents and the children themselves.. An inspirational speaker who drew on his own experiences to give real life examples to provide support and encouragement whilst highlighting the challenges he faced . Lots of opportunity for questions. Jude took time to answer them all both during the session and on an individual basis afterwards. We would definitely recommend Jude to provide a talk to people working with autism, parents, caregivers and the individuals themselves.
