Meet Will

Ignition Team Accent
I’m Will Golding, and just like you, I’m a high-functioning neurodiverse young man who loves gaming. I used to think my diagnosis meant I’d never know how to fit into society because I see life differently than others. Most people assume autism is just one thing. They don’t see that it’s a spectrum, so “high-functioning” young adults, like me, don’t experience the same types of challenges as others on the spectrum. And unfortunately, the right levels of support are not there.
Every day we’re faced with challenging and difficult scenarios. Social situations can quickly become overwhelming; high stimulus environments are generally too much, and finding (and holding down) a suitable job is tough. If I’m honest, we never feel like we’re going to fit in.

But living with autism doesn’t have to be this way. Sure there will always be challenges; but instead of thinking of it as game over, it’s game on!

And that’s where I come in. Consider me your peer or ‘mate’ who’s lived, and continues to live, a similar life. Ignition is my way of bringing together like-minded and active high-functioning autistic men who want to move forward with their lives. I pair my own life experience with my connections to help you expand your horizons through social groups, fitness, education or employment

If there’s ever a chance to move up a level and ignite your life, IT’S NOW.

3 Simple steps to a better more productive life

Step 1: Start Here

Follow the instructions and ensure this is the right program for your son. Once confirmed, the service agreement is signed, services chosen, and staff allocated.

Step 2: Build Connection

Connection begins by meeting Will or one of the group's hosts beforehand at a familiar location. This will help him feel comfortable (they talk primarily about video games) before starting with the Gamers.

Step 3: Happy & Independent

He has a group of mates, confidence grows with a vision for the future. He learns how to be independent and you can have peace knowing he will be ok.

You will love watching your son find purpose and become independent

There is a good future for him:

Society is harsh on those with Autism and Aspergers. This doesn't mean your son can't have a happy, independent and fulfilling life.
