Chris Bonnello (1985 – present) is an autistic author, speaker and special needs tutor, formerly a primary school teacher. In 2015 he launched Autistic Not Weird to share his insights from both a personal and professional perspective, a venture which has seen him attract over 100,000 Facebook followers and over two million page hits on his website (autisticnotweird.com). Based in Nottingham, UK, he has delivered speaking engagements as far away as India and Sydney Opera House. His first publication, “What We Love Most About Life”, was an uplifting book designed to help autistic young people feel less alone. The “Underdogs” series, which began in 2019, is a series of dystopia novels featuring neurodiverse heroes who escaped an attack on their special school. Bonnello was a nominee for the 2017 National Diversity Awards (Positive Role Model for Disability), two-time winner at the Autism Hero Awards (Top Journalist 2017, Online Social Community 2018) and won the National Autistic Society Professionals Award for Outstanding Achievement by an Individual on the Autism Spectrum in 2019.Read more Read less
