Anna Kennedy OBE has two children (Patrick and Angelo) who were diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and autism.
Since their diagnosis she has set up schools and colleges to provide an improved education and other facilities for special children affected by Asperger syndrome and autism. The first school she set up has over 250 pupils and is the biggest school in the country for children with autism. After setting up this school, Anna created a vocational college for adults where sufferers of autism could come and learn. She was awarded an OBE Award by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace in 2012 for her services and her website AnnaKennedyOnline.com provides much needed support to countless families.
