I'm Dan Jones, I have high-functioning autism. I am author of bestselling book Look Into My Eyes: Asperger's, Hypnosis, and Me and a number of other books around parenting, hypnosis, self-help, and wellbeing. As well as having autism I also have over 15 years professional experience working with children and their families in a variety of setting from residential children's homes, to social care and family support work, and prior to this I worked within homes for those with mental health issues (including some residents with autism - which obviously isn't a mental health condition, but they were in the homes).
