Autism’s Got Talent Highlights to be Shown on Katie Price’s Show

Autism’s Got Talent Highlights to be Shown on Katie Price’s Show

On Monday next week, 22nd July at 1 pm Katie Price will be sharing some highlights from Autism’s Got Talent on her Quest Red TV show ‘Katie Price: My Crazy Life‘.

At the London show Katie and her son Harvey presented one of the acts, and Harvey shouted out words of encouragement to the performers. Harvey was so taken with the show that Katie sent in his audition of Harvey playing the organ. Harvey then showcased his talent and performed ‘Over the Rainbow’ and ‘ When the Saints Come Marching In’ for the recent Autism’s Got Talent St Ives Roadshow.

The audience gave Harvey a standing ovation, with Harvey’s sister Princess in attendance to support her brother. Harvey thanked the audience and was appreciative of the applause and his certificate of participation.

Autism’s Got Talent has a unique format: it does not hold auditions, instead it aims to boost participants’ confidence by shining a spotlight on their individual strengths. The show was founded in 2012 by Anna Kennedy OBE, ambassador for Options Autism, one of the key part sponsors of the event, who provides care and education to children, young people and adults with autism.

CEO of Options Autism, Graham Baker, was delighted to be supporting the show for the third year running. Graham shares: ‘AGT provides an amazing – and incredibly moving – opportunity for those with autism to shine and celebrate success. Recognising and nurturing the unique strengths of individuals is key to unlocking their potential and we are proud to support this leading charity and autism event.’

Previous AGT stars include the dance group Autism with Attitude, who recently appeared on BBC One’s hit show The Greatest Dancer.

Anna and her team took the show to St Ives and the audience were treated to a dazzling array of live performances, including 23-year-old singer Charlotte Fieldson, who was non-verbal until the age of five when she started to sing along to ‘Sleeping Beauty’. Local magician Jono Blythe also wowed audiences with the help of his glamorous volunteer Katie Price, who travelled down to Cornwall to support her son Harvey as he made his debut performance in the show.

Harvey – who has severe autism, a rare complex genetic condition called Prader-Willi Syndrome and is partially blind – has been playing the keyboard since the age of four. He performed two songs at the event, footage of which will be shared on Katie Price’s latest TV show this summer.

Anna Kennedy OBE, a passionate advocate and campaigner for individuals and families affected by autism for over 20 years, reflected on the night, saying: ‘This year’s Autism’s Got Talent has been another smash hit, packed with some of our most exciting talent yet. We’ve been blown away by the amount of positive feedback from both press and families and are hugely proud of all of our performers.

‘AGT is a life changing experience and it has been a privilege to watch our performers gain confidence and self-belief. We’re looking forward to celebrating our next roadshow on 12th October at the Winston Churchill Theatre in Ruislip.’

KATIE Price supported son Harvey as he performed on stage in Autism’s Got Talent on Saturday.

Harvey has severe autism, a rare complex genetic condition called Prader-Willi syndrome and is partially blind.

His mum watched him shine as the 16-year old made his stage debut with a keyboard performance.

Harvey has been playing the keyboard since the age of four and was inspired to audition after watching Autism’s Got Talent earlier this year at The Mermaid Theatre in London.

Please click on video below to watch Harvey

Autism’s Got Talent was created by Anna Kennedy OBE, Autism Ambassador for Options Autism, who provide care and education to children, young people and adults with autism.
 
Harvey is the child of former glamour model Katie and footballer Dwight Yorke.
 
He has made numerous telly appearances, before becoming the subject of vile social media posts that he and his mum are now trying to make a criminal offence.
 
Harvey had an Instagram account that had an impressive 102k followers – but it landed Katie in hot water with fans after he was the subject of cruel trolling.
 
The 16-year-old was hounded online following a drawing he shared of his mum on the Gatwick Express.
 
But it sparked a huge debate, as people hurled abuse at the youngster and slammed his mum.His Instagram account has since been deleted.
 
In January, it was revealed that Parliament backed Katie’s efforts in criminalising online hate.

SeNsational Tutors Joanna Gibbs on Women’s Radio

Anna Kennedy OBE’s guest this week on ‘All things Autism ‘ is Joanna Gibbs . Anna first met Joanna at her charities Autism Expo at Brunel University earlier in the year. 

Joanna has 20 years’ experience working with children,  including 12 years supporting those with specific educational and behavioural needs; ASD (autism), ADHD/ ADD, dyslexia, language delay, memory difficulties, focus and concentration difficulties, Down’s Syndrome, Prader-Willi Syndrome and other needs.

Joanna is a qualified teacher with a Postgraduate Certificate in Education, has an undergraduate degree with honours in linguistics and phonetics from the University of Leeds, and was awarded a merit in her Masters’ of Education degree in Inclusion, and Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties.

Joanna has previously worked as a Behavioural Needs Assistant and Speech Therapy Assistant within a NHS multidisciplinary team in Coventry, UK. The opportunity to work alongside teachers, parents, SENCos, speech therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, and nurses directly attributed to the broad insight and understanding that encompasses her high level of experience and skills today. She was able to deploy a variety of strategies and interventions within the home and school environment to target a number of educational, behavioural and health needs.

This in turn provided a safe environment to enable children to thrive, which boosted their confidence and well-being, and allowed children to unlock and fulfil their true potential. This rewarding experience propelled her to want to help people outside her own community.

With a developed sense of empathy towards others Joanna then decided to work as a teacher in one of the largest slums in Northern India. This was an eyeopening experience and attributed greatly to her continued passion to help others nationally and internationally today. Following this incredible experience Joanna was employed as an intern at The American School of London, UK.

Upon successful completion, she was then headhunted to become a founding member and subsequent Head of Leaning Support at Chadwick International School in South Korea, Head of Autism and Behaviour (ADHD) support at at adolescent unit in Adelaide, South Australia, and the KS2 Lead teacher at an international school in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Joanna brings her extensive international experience back to Europe to make a profound difference to the families and children in the UK.  She has a number of exciting success stories working with children with ASD (autism), ADHD, dyslexia, behaviour and communication difficulties, and other needs, which she would love to share! 

Joanna is the founder and director of SENsational Tutors, the UK’s leading private SEN company; https://www.sensationaltutors.co.uk/.  Contact details are: https://www.sensationaltutors.co.uk/contact-us/ or email director@sensationaltutors.co.uk
