Today I will be interviewing Chris Bonnello! Chris is an autistic former primary school teacher and author of the popular website Autistic Not Weird.

When Chris was ten an educational pscyhologist came to assess him. It was 1995 so the professional psychologist wrote down "slightly odd personality" on his form and that's where it ended.
