Calls to Action

Meet Polly of The Autism Speaks Network

Meet Polly Tommey, a content producer featured on The Autism Speaks Network. You can download the app for iOS devices (iPhone & iPad) or Android devices. Polly helps us get to know him in the following post.

Polly Tommey is a director and host for Autism Media Channel, Editor in Chief of Autism File magazine and founder of The Autism Trust - a nonprofit based in the UK and USA aimed at creating futures for people with autism. Polly and her husband Jonathan Tommey are authors of Autism: a practical guide to improving your child’s quality of life. Polly's goal is to help families worldwide address the issues surrounding autism and associated conditions. Much of the footage seen on Autism Media Channel is filmed and edited by people with ASD because Polly believes in showcasing the great many talents and potential people with ASD have; many, she says, just need support and to be given the chance.

The Autism Speaks blog features opinions from people throughout the autism community. Each blog represents the point of view of the author and does not necessarily reflect Autism Speaks' beliefs or point of view.
