A future with Autism?

David Gill

When David's parents were told that he didn't have a future, they responded by encouraging David to push himself. A diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome enabled him to go to a special school where he did well and learned to be independent - but he always wanted a job. An opening at NHS England for people with lived experience of Autism meant that David could achieve his goal and also inspire others that there is, after all, a future with Autism.
