My name is Thomas and I have had speech and language difficulties since birth. I am involved with both the CDA leadership course and the Community Journalism project as I am passionate about helping Disabled people find work and explaining to employers the benefits of employing people with autism. I produced a cartoon showing the difficulties I have had finding employment and showed it during various online meetings. I worked for Clarity for 6 years – on the production line doing various jobs including moving boxes around the factory, labelling products and screwing caps onto bottles but was made redundant. (This was the only job which gave me regular employment). My hobbies include dancing and exploring London which help me relax.
