Tell us a little bit about yourself and how autism has affected your life
I live too far away from Andrew to be closely affected by his autism, but have seen the effect on Andrew, his parents and close family. On reflection, some of the most challenging behaviour I had to deal with at school could have been attributed to the less severe end of the spectrum. To have coped with Andrew's extreme autism for so long, Loz and Avril must be saints.
