Travis George Illness
Britain’s Got Talent’s Travis George has autism. He was diagnosed with autism at the age of 8. In an interview with the National Autistic Society, Travis said:
“I was about eight when it actually came about. My mum was basically stopped by a teacher at my primary school, who asked her, ‘have you ever heard of Asperger syndrome and autism?’. I’m very lucky, as my mum has worked with people with learning disabilities and autism all her life. Before I was even three-years-old she suspected I might be on the spectrum. She was so relieved to hear someone else finally say it out loud. Before that, she’d spent her time thinking, ‘he can’t be autistic, I must be crazy’, but it turned out she was right. I was diagnosed about a year later. Having my mum with me to explain the process really helped me.
“At the time I didn’t really understand much about autism. I was more concerned with collecting power rangers to be honest! I didn’t really get it, but as soon as I heard the word ‘autistic’ leave my mum’s mouth, I was intrigued. My journey towards understanding myself began there.”
