My guest today, Michael Barton has a very personal message to share.
You see, Michael is autistic, and he wants everyone to know that the world is a better place because of the unique gifts autistic people possess.
While still at a young age he has already published two books and given over 100 talks on autism, Asperger's syndrome and neurodiversity.
His talks focus on positive aspects of being autistic, to inspire people and break down the barriers autistic people face.
Michael also advises companies on their Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) policies surrounding neurodiversity.
Fascinating fact: Michael works as an E-commerce Data Analyst for Autovia, making him one of just 16% of the autistic population in full time employment.
I learned a lot about the world from the view of an autistic person. I realized there is much I have to learn still.
Have a listen and together lets create a world where everyone's kids can thrive, which includes the world of education.Links Mentioned In Episode>>> Listen to Michael's talks, check out his books
