Asperger’s Syndrome ‘Do I Know You?” by Chrissie Bligh
‘Difference’, ‘Diversity’, ‘Disability’, ‘Impairment’, ‘Equality’ Melanie Jamesons’ talk at our 2017 AGM. Melanie is Chair of the Dyslexia Adult Network, sits on the Westminster Commission on Recruitment and Dyslexia/ND and has long worked for ‘Learning Difficulties’ to be taken into account throughout the criminal justice system. She is increasingly finding the need to link with other disability groups in order to make our joint voice louder and finds that the Quaker testimony to equality and our long history of criminal justice reform underpins her work.
