Hi all, I apologise for the lack of online activity lately, I have been kept extremely busy with organising the pilot of the Recharge Rooms in Schools Program. For those who like me were not able to listen live to the radio show on the 3rd of December you can find the recording of the show by heading to www.3cr.org.au/disabilityday2018 and scrolling down to the 10:30am time slot and clicking listen now. I just listened to it and found it super empowering hearing from other advocates who are just as passionate about inclusive education as I am.
Hi everyone, I have some exciting news. For the past 11 months, I have been working on a pretty cool project called the Recharge Rooms In Schools Program. This program allows schools to host one of my innovative Recharge Rooms permanently giving students of all abilities a safe and quiet space to go to relax and recharge at any point in the day that they feel overloaded. This program is one of a kind as it includes a consultation service in which I speak to school council, staff and students to design a space that suits the individual needs of your school and I assist in installing the space making the process as easy as possible. I am now looking for interested schools in Victoria to pilot this program in 2019. Pilot schools will be able to access this program at a subsidised cost and will act as a template for the future of this program. As many parents and teachers can agree this is a service that is long overdue, we lose too many young people who could possibly make a significant impact on our world because they cannot cope with mainstream school and it is time to act now before yet more young people slip between the cracks. If you are interested in being one of the pilot schools, feel free to email: firstname.lastname@example.org and if you have any questions feel free to also email the above email or leave a comment below.

Hi everyone, I have some exciting news. On the 3rd of December, I am going to be on a radio show called The Inclusionist discussing inclusive education. This show will be on 3CR Radio which is 855 am at 10:30 am AEDT. Feel free to stay on the station until 7:00pm AEDT as the disability community takes over the station for International Day for people with a Disability and will feature artists who identify as having a disability and talk shows discussing all things disability. For more information and to view the timetable for the day head to: https://www.3cr.org.au/disabilityday2018
Hi all. My work as an autism advocate is all about supporting the autism community and a big part of this is supplying resources to assist families and individuals on the spectrum to navigate life. This is why I have created a resource page on my website which has links to blogs, support services, businesses and advocacy organisations. Currently, the links have come from my own contacts however I also receive many emails from people from all over the world requesting me to have a look at suggested resources before putting that resource on the page. This task has become increasingly difficult as I am only one man and I am only able to give feedback from an autistic point of view. This is why I have come up with the idea of creating a resource reference group. This group would be made up of interested individuals who either identify as being autistic or are families of people on the spectrum and their task would be to review and provide feedback about these resources which I would forward to you. If this sounds like something you would be interested in being part of feel free to send me a message or email me at: email@example.com
Thank you for your interest.
