Preamble:

David has had unrivaled experience in both public and political arenas in the area of Autistic Spectrum Conditions, including support, education, early years development, life-stage transition, employment and many more subjects to name but a few, whilst also keeping that experience up-to-date and relevant to the "real world" environment from a geographical context.

From this point of view he has been asked by many groups, organisations and government departments to represent the interests of the Aspie Community at large and to promote Neuro-Diversity, an equality where Aspies and Ordinary people alike are respected for who they are and treated no better and no worse than one another. In this regard, he is widely regarded including politically by many commentators as a true representative of the Autistic Spectrum Community, who is always willing to lend an ear of support to make sure that advocacy and a strong but understanding voice within the community is available.
