Kevin Healey, who has Asperger’s syndrome, decided to write a book based on his experiences and those of his identical twin brother Shaun, who has autism.
The book, Twin Brothers Worlds Apart, was published 15 months ago with proceeds being split between the charity Kevin founded, Staffordshire Adults Autistic Society (SAAS) and the Autism Research Centre in Cambridge.
Kevin, 35, said: “As a person with autism, I feel that autism has never been portrayed correctly”.
All the autism films show adults on the high functioning end of the spectrum, and adults with genius savant abilities, like Dustin Hoffman in the film the Rain Man.
