Living with Autism Part 2 - Alex talks to Professor Tony Attwood

In part one of this 2 part series on Living with Autism ( it is in your feed now, so if you haven’t heard that ep, go and listen to it now.) Alex spoke to Murray Jones, a dad living in Queensland with his wife 2 daughters and his awesome autistic son Fred. We heard a story that is all too familiar to our next guest Professor Tony Attwood. 

Tony is the author of multiple books on Autism including the bestseller The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome.  He has an Honours degree in Psychology from the University of Hull, Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Surrey and a PhD from the University of London. He is currently adjunct Associate Professor at Griffith University in Queensland so he really knows his stuff.
