About Chris Bonnello of Autistic Not Weird

Chris Bonnello is an autistic advocate, award-winning writer and international speaker, also a novelist and special needs tutor (formerly a primary school teacher). In 2015, he launched Autistic Not Weird to share his insights from both a personal and professional perspective, a venture which has seen him attract 130,000 Facebook followers and over 2.5 million page hits on his website (at time of writing, January 2021), as well as speaking engagements as far away as India and Sydney Opera House. He is the author of the "Underdogs" novels, a series of dystopia books with heroes from a special school - hailed by The Guardian as "hugely popular" and "written with furious energy" - and "What We Love Most About Life", an uplifting non-fiction book designed to help autistic young people feel less alone.
