Siena’s first experience of the show and shared: “I am in awe of the performances I saw at Autism’s Got Talent. I am so grateful to be part of such an amazing event. Much to often Autism is seen in a negative light and the focus is on the challenges and difficulties. This is the first time in my life I have seen the talents of autistic youth and adults celebrated. I was blown away by the quality of the performances whether it was singing , dancing , playing an instrument these performers could stand shoulder to shoulder with professional performers. Thank you Anna Kennedy for such an awesome evening . It exceeded all my expectations and definitely will be the highlight of my year in 2019!”
Highlights of Katie Price and her son Harvey’s visit to Autism’s Got Talent will be shown on Katie’s show My ‘Crazy Life’ very soon.
