About me

Who am I?
Krysia (blogger name krysiawally) is a 25 year old British MA student and Educational Support Assistant at a UK university. I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in 1995 and have BA (1:1 Hons, 2014) in French and German. I am a keen traveller (especially in Germanophone countries!) , am animal mad and enjoy local history of my local area.

When did you start this and why? 
I started the blog in September 2016. I started it as a means for me to share the projects I am currently involved in with friends, colleagues and family. It is also a means of sharing information; my second cousin wanted to find out more about autism and Asperger's Syndrome (as did a few other of my friends who are teachers and youth workers).

How come you are talking about autism specifically? 
I mainly focus on autism and Asperger's Syndrome because I am autistic! I also believe that curiosity should be fed and some of the best people to answer questions about living as an autistic person are those people themselves. However from time to time I may talk about other topics too.

What projects are you currently involved in?
I am joint project lead on the Attentiveness to Autism project on my local Methodist circuit, I run workshops and keynote speeches for an education trust and fostering agency in my county and on rotation am on local BBC Radio as Sunday morning current affairs panelist. I am also heavily involved in student support as part of my job at my university.
As part of Attentiveness to Autism, we have run 'autism-friendly' church services and workshops to churches tailored to their needs. I am attending the SEN Methodist Roundtable in April with my minister.

I'm interested in your projects, how do I get in contact with you? 
Please leave a comment on the most recent post and I will do my best to get back to you.

Happy reading
