Speaker: Miles Glaspole
Student & Comedian
Miles Glaspole is a 21-year-old student and comedian with Asperger's syndrome. Miles talks with humour and frankness about the ways in which both individual teachers and his school experiences helped his learning journey and in some cases hindered it. Miles has appeared on The Chase Australia and featured in the first episode of Tom Gleeson's ABC quiz show Hard Quiz with the wholly non-autistic subject of Doctor Who. In 2017, Miles joined the writing team for Hard Quiz and began 2018 completing another top secret writing opportunity, as well as studying Arts at the University of Melbourne. Miles’ story is deeply personal, engaging and honest.
