On 29th May OTARC received an email from Daniel Pugh, who wanted to share his story with those who may be interested.
Daniel’s Story provides insight into the struggles faced daily by students on the spectrum. Here is what he said.
I was happy to be made aware that the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre exists. I discovered it purely by chance upon reading my local newspaper, the Warrnambool Standard, an affiliate of Fairfax Media. I read an article about a young boy whose story is not dissimilar to my own, his name is Lucas Whittam. I saw mention of your institute in a quote from Professor Cheryl Dissanayake, and wanted to share my own experiences in what was a very turbulent childhood.
