My name is Robyn Steward, I am the Author of The Independent Woman’s handbook to super safe living on the Autistic Spectrum. 

I have a diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome (a type of autism).

I am an Autism and Asperger’s trainer  for professionals working in education, children services and adult social care.

I am a former member of the  Department of health’s autism programme board ,

I have also worked as a  mentor  to other people on the Autistic spectrum, and their families.

I have provided consultancy to organisations and events, including the national thestatre’s production of ” the curious incident of the dog in the night time”

It is important to me that people in schools and services have professionals and others around them who understand autism .

I am also an artist , musician and broadcaster.

My training is from a person not just a textbook.

I am based in London, and have spoken  all over the world, including USA and Australia and Europe.

I make sure that I engage with others in the autism community so that I am not simply just talking about my own experiences, because everyone on the autistic spectrum is different.

I am also a NAS (National Autistic Society) Ambassador, and have taken an active role in campaigning for services and the rights of people on the autistic spectrum.

I spoke at the launch of the Autism Bill (now the Autism Act) in the House of Commons.

I also take an active role locally I am on the Wandsworth Autism Action Plan Steering Group.

I have started making things for radio including the BBC and chelmsford community Radio.

I have a large media profile including a documentary about my life on BBC Radio 4 , Channel 4 News, and CNN. See my Press Page for more information.

Here is a video of me presenting

To get to where I am today, I have been through lots of life experiences, both good and bad.

In March 2015 at the NAS professional awards I and Julia Mulkin MBE were awarded the “outstanding achievement by an individual on the autism spectrum” award ,thank you for all of your support.

Having worked with the National Theatre on their production of ” The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time” as a consultant , a documentary was made on the production and was screened on November 2015 here is the trailer

    Hi Robyn, I heard you talk in Bristol recently at an NAS event and didn’t manage to fill one of your cards in. Just wanted to say it was lovely to hear you talk. I will be listening out for you on the radio soon. X

      Hi Robyn, just been listening to you on Radio 4. One thing you said that I couldn’t fit together with everything else you said (which I thought was brill!) was that you’re an artist. Do you paint or draw or do music or do performances? The word “artist” seems to crop up more and more…best wishes, Will

    I am the mother of a 25yr old young man with Aspergers. He has had his support cut and has had to come back to live with me. We cannot find carers who have experience in ASC

    Hi Robyn, I heard you speak at the TES Special Educational Needs Show on Saturday and just wanted to say that it was an honour to meet you and listen to your seminar! You were very informative and inspirational; I learnt a lot from the session! Thank you for meeting with me afterwards, as I am starting out afresh with children with Autism, the advice you provided was very helpful!! Thank you once again.

      Hi Robyn, I want to say thank you for what you are doing. It’s good to find a female UK role model. Liking purple is a bonus!
      I’ve just joined Twitter so am getting some articles with you on.

    I heard you speak at the DGSYourchoice conference on the 25th May. I work for DGSM as a project assistant and I also have AS. I have only been diagnosed as AS fairly recently although I have always been “different” (aren’t we all?) but am just beginning to like myself and be comfortable with myself, at the tender age of 40. I found your speech very motivational and I find you an inspiration. I now know there are no limits for me, except the ones I myself put in place. Thank you.

    Robyn I heard you speak last night and although I am considered to be very effective with children who have high functioning autism I learned a lot. Thank you.
