I went through the long list of what he has done on behalf of those in the world of autism. He has taken his own diagnosis and made the most of his opportunities to make the world a better place for other “neurodiverse” people who are not as fortunate as he is. He represents many more “neurodiverse” people who cannot speak up for themselves. Every community needs a positive role model and the autism community is no different. I am the mom of a 14 year old daughter who is mainstreamed and well-adjusted. I have finally been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, as of February of this year.

He is an activist and will inspire other adults with autism to speak out.”

Thursday, May 1, 2014 – “Kevin Healey is a true advocate for all children and adults living with Autism. Kevin has been the victim of cyber bullying which could have easily resulted in Kevin withdrawing from society. Instead he has taken a stand on behalf of all those individuals who, at some point in their lives have also become victims through societies lack of compassion for people who may struggle on a daily basis to live in a world which can be frightening, unpredictable and very often judgemental. I am a mother of 2 autistic children, I’m also a co-founder and CEO of PACT for Autism who support families with children and adults affected by Autism.

This is a disability that can have profound effect on the lives not just of autistics, but also on their families and Kevin has gone to great efforts to bring this home to a wider public as well as trying to effect legislation. He is an inspiration to many facing this problem and I would commend him for this award as it would bring great encouragement to others facing the difficulties that autism presents. I am the grandfather of Tom Worgan, an autistic 6 year old who lives near Lancaster. His mum, Joanne, has written about autism and has appeared in a film that Kevin made about bullying against autistic people.

He has battled his own fair share of negativity and still finds the power inside to continue to fight for others like him. I was a victim of bullying and never had the confidence or energy to stand up and fight those people who wronged me. I appreciate him doing this not only for me but for everyone like us, including my daughter. We want a better, kinder more just world for our children and Kevin is helping to make this happen.”

I run an Asperger support group in Essex, and have a family member with autism. Life is extremely hard for people with autism, and parents carers. There is NO support out there from local authorities, and Tory government is ruthlessly and shamelessly pulling the safety net of benefits from under people with disabilities.
