The irony of this talk is that autism is defined as a mental

condition characterised by great difficulty in communicating with others. Richard says, “No one could have known I was autistic back then or throughout my upbringing. My earliest memories are of incomprehension! I have grown up, persevered and made the most of the opportunities I had, getting work, marrying, and having a family. I will talk about the autistic life, explain mysteries, explore the culture of autism and cover strategies for the autistic life.”
