From an early age, Jude knew he was different. Following an early childhood filled with quirky behaviours and marginalisation, Jude was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. With the support of his parents, Jude navigated through school and university, albeit with difficulty. Jude’s life changed when he discovered he was going to be a Father. Coming to terms with becoming a parent and denying his Asperger’s diagnosis started to cause a rift between Jude and his infant child. This is a view of life and love through the eyes of an Autistic adult, from being non-verbal and aggressive, to acceptance and letting go.
