Anna Kennedy OBE is a force of nature. Shocked by the lack of support for her two sons, both of whom are on the autism spectrum, Anna’s journey to becoming one of the UK’s leading authorities on providing support for and raising awareness of autistic children and their families started a quarter of a century ago when she founded a school for neurodivergent kids.
Her charity, Anna Kennedy Online, continues to provide help and support to thousands of people and Anna’s commitment and hard work was recognised by HM The Queen who awarded Anna an OBE back in 2012.
In this half hour interview with Steven Smith, Anna reveals what it’s like to work with Katie Price, why Kate Winslet owes her a cup of tea and what unsavoury domestic task awaited her on her return from Buckingham Palace.
