Hall of Fame

Welcome to the Autistic Not Weird Hall of Fame!

The people who appear on this page are those wonderful enough to support Autistic Not Weird via my Patreon page in exchange for various rewards. Here is a list of people who may one day be responsible for my advocacy work to become my full time career.

“Proud to support someone who wants to raise awareness, acceptance and understanding regarding autism. Thankful for the honest, open and personal stories shared that in return offer amazing support, ideas and help to parents like myself. Both of these will impact Eliza’s life and ours for the better. Best of luck for what I think will be a very successful future.”

Leanne Hunt

I’m proud to support the work of ANW on behalf of my five year old son. Chris’ articles have been a great source of advice for me and have helped me to look at things from my son’s perspective. ANW has also helped friends and family to better understand autism, particularly as the way it affects a person is not always visible.

 

Vikki Prichard

Proud to be able to give back to Chris for the support he gave us, and to assist him and ANW in helping others. It’s about having safe space, where people can relate and share both the good and the bad, and knowing we are not alone.

 

Owen Morris

 

 

Trish Hart

 

 

Ilja Drost

“Chris is doing a great job in bringing more positive awareness to autism. As a mum to a son with Asperger’s I feel awareness and understanding is desperately needed! I truly believe the possibilities are endless as long as people are given a fair chance. My son Lucca is proud of who he is and I couldn’t agree with him more! That is what I wish for everyone…. to be proud of who you are and to be respected! Chris, keep up the good work!”
