There were many acts including Jo Redman who is a young patron of Anna Kennedy Online and 3 x World Kickboxing Champion. She spoke about her younger years growing up as an undiagnosed female with Asperger’s Syndrome and how she was the victim of bullying. Jo will be delivering the same speech at the House of Commons when she attends to deliver the findings of a survey carried out on behalf of Anna Kennedy Online into parents experiences of their children regarding the issues of diagnosis, inclusion and bullying. So far the survey has over 1000 signatures and Anna is hoping to receive many more across the UK before she speaks at House of Commons in early December.
