Your Autism is a great magazine which you get as part of your membership with the National Autistic Society. It is delivered to your door four times over the year. I love a read of this as it has some really good articles and interviews.
This month's edition includes an interview with Anne Hegerty from the quiz show The Chase. I'm a big fan of The Chase and the 'Governess' so I enjoyed reading about her life with Autism from diagnosis and how she became involved with the programme.
There is also information about accessing mental health support from Lucy Armstrong who is a advisor from the NAS helpline.
Another great interview in this edition is with Travis Smith who plays Mark in the new series of The A Word. It was lovely to read about his experience portraying an Autistic person on TV, drawing on his own experiences as a Autistic teenager.
The magazine also includes Your Autism Extra which is an online extension. It offers bonus material, reviews, advice and artwork. Members can also access an online version of the original Your Autism Magazine too.
Annual Membership for the NAS is offered to:
an Individual - from £24 - concessions from £8 - overseas £36
Joint Membership - from £30 - concessions from £12 - overseas £42

Just go to the NAS website at www.autism.org.uk for more information about membership and to take advantage of your magazine.
I do bring past issues of this magazine to our Derby Branch meetings so feel free to come along and have a look at them and see what you think.
For now thank you for reading today and please join me tomorrow for another 'Pass the Remote'.
Every Saturday will be about Autism, family and life.
