We are very excited to announce that from 7pm till 8pm on Wednesday 17th February, the brilliant Rosie King will be hosting a live Q&A on Twitter with The National Autistic Society and Brain in Hand. Rosie has described brilliantly how Brain in Hand has helped her move towards independence in her latest blog

Rosie King has inspired a generation, seeing autism through fresh eyes.  ‘My Autism and Me’, the documentary she presented, won a Royal Television Society award, and her TEDMED talk has been viewed by more than 1.7 million people. 
But Rosie is now facing what she sees as “one of the most exciting and one of the most petrifying concepts on my mind – The looming future of leaving home to go to university and start my life as an independent functioning adult”.  
But as ever, Rosie is looking positively. She doesn’t “want to be Peter Pan”. So she is sharing her fears and the steps she is taking to prepare herself. You can read Rosie’s tips in her blog, such as “imagining another person is giving me the advice I need to give myself,” and using Brain in Hand: “It’s just like I have that older Rosie in my pocket and I can get her up for advice whether I’m just a little uneasy or having a full-blown panic attack”.
Our twitter Q&A will be run from @Autism and will be your chance to ask Rosie anything about taking steps towards independence. Post your questions using #towardsindependence.

  • Brain in Hand has helped me to solve all sorts of problems by myself, which has really built my confidence. For example, I have an issue with eye contact when I talk with friends. To solve this, I plan in advance what I can say to a person, which is something I put into my Brain in Hand.

  • I wish that there had been something like this when I was a headteacher of a challenging school for those individuals who were either autistic or suffered from anxiety. It would have added another level of support.

  • “We can use Brain in Hand to help people to achieve those outcomes and use the data from the system to demonstrate this: You put the same things into Brain in Hand that are being measured by the council.”
