Kick back in your favourite comfy chair and join Jo and Anna chatting about autism awareness, Strictly Come Dancing and meeting the Queen. Anna shares the story of her children's diagnosis. What led her to set up two specialist schools, a college, a residential home and Anna Kennedy Online. She is also known as Autisms answer to 'Simon Cowell' (she's not sure that's a good thing) owing to the fabulous annual competition she created called 'Autism's Got Talent'. Jo and Anna are massive dance fans so couldn't resist nattering about Anna's amazing experience on the 'Strictly People's Special' in 2015 where she danced with the brilliant Robin Windsor. Oh and of course the realities of receiving an OBE and her unique Italian/Middlesbrough roots. More info on www.annakennedyonline.com
