A big welcome into my life! I am a Dan from the UK and I have Aspergers Syndrome. #Aspergers Syndrome or #ASD is a form of Autism, often referred to as High Functioning Autism or #Autism Spectrum Disorder. I video every day of my life and upload videos for you to come along with me.

I also have help videos for helping people get a diagnosis of Autism or Aspergers Syndrome, and also some advise and help for anyone who is friends, partners or loved ones who suffer from Autism or Aspergers Syndrome and just about anyone on the Autism Spectrum.

I am also in a band: http://www.ianbeale.com

*********************************
Short history on me

I was diagnosed with ASD (Asperger’s Syndrome) when I was 26 years old, after experiencing life with Autism that was unknown to me for 26 years.

Now I enjoy all things in life with my dog Randell and my girlfriend Naomi, we try and help and educate anyone and everyone on Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome however and wherever we can. I also have a BSc in Chemistry (degree).
