Sleeping and ASD; Eating and ASD

Tony michelle

Virtual Presenters

They have a combined knowledge as clinical psychologists of over 70 years, authors, researchers and consultants. Professor Attwood's book, Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals is an international bestseller and is considered seminal in the field.

Dr Garnett has specialised in the field of autism in her own private practise for 27 years. Her peer-reviewed research has informed understanding of early detection and the female profile, her 2018 book with Barb Cook, Spectrum Women: Walking to the Beat of Autism, is a seminal work on female presentation.

Both share a vision to expand awareness, understanding and acceptance of autism amongst parents, professionals and the broader community.
