This is Jeanette Purkis's radio show where she and invited guests talk about all things Autism. Jeanette is an Autistic author, advocate and public speaker and is passionate about empowering people on the Autism spectrum to live fulfilled and positive lives. Jeanette is a keen advocate for inclusion and appropriate support for people with Autism spectrum conditions in such areas as employment, education, parenting and access to health services.
This week Jeanette will be speaking with Malcolm Mayfield. Malcolm is a certified practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming, a qualified presenter and trainer, and co-author and Australian distributor of the AAPC book “The Hidden Curriculum of Getting and Keeping a Job: Navigating the Social Landscape of Employment.”
Malcolm received a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome at the age of 37. This event led him to deeply analyse how his Aspergers had shaped his life in comparison to others on the autism spectrum. He identified key strategies that could be used to assist adults with autism and Asperger Syndrome into and within the workforce. Malcolm’s consultancy, Autism STAR Pty Ltd was created to deliver those strategies.
