About Me

My name is Stephanie Marsh and I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, a condition on the autism spectrum, in 1995 at the age of eight. Despite professionals being unsure at the time of my diagnosis that I would be able to cope with mainstream education, I not only coped but thrived, going on to achieve an Upper Second Class degree in Criminology with Sociology from the University of Kent. I have been working with children with learning disabilities, autism, epilepsy and various other physical and neurological conditions since January 2009 and am now moving on to a care home specialising in adults with autism and learning disabilities. I am about to move in with my fiancé into our first home together. I have a keen interest in educating other people about Aspergers and also enjoy learning about other conditions. I have been keeping my own blog on life with Aspergers Syndrome since August 2013 and I hope to be a regular contributor on here too.

Now, having this dislike of change, you may think that the most sensible thing to do would be to make any changes slowly. It worked differently for me. In the past couple of months, I have found a new […]...
