It seems that I'm finally getting a bit of recognition; various organisations realising that I actually do have ways in which I'm able to contribute to society - it's a pity that it's only voluntary work though which doesn't have the acceptance, status, and money which comes when you have a job.
On Friday I'll be taking my walk leader's certificate at the Rangers' Station in the middle of Sandal Beat Wood, only about a mile away from my house. This is so that I'll be legally able to lead local walks for people who are on various Autism Plus projects in the town. The organisation also wants me to become a member of their management committee and attend a conference at the end of the month.
Meanwhile, in Leeds, the person who's in charge of the adult Asperger's group there seems to be including me in a lot of the decision-making process since I did the Asperger's awareness training presentation at Leeds Advocacy a few months ago.
