Meet The Girl With The Curly Hair

Yo, welcome to my website. My name is Alis and I am the founder of The Curly Hair Project, a social enterprise that supports people on the autistic spectrum. I live in London. I have a 1st class chemistry degree and a Masters. I am an author, scriptwriter, songwriter, rapper, film director, marketer and entrepreneur.

I have the energy of a Siberian Husky and the drive of a Mercedes Benz.

I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome when I was 22 and I started The Curly Hair Project to innovate the way the world views and understands autism. I’m extremely passionate and disciplined about what I do!

I have combined all of my interests and skills – and learned plenty of new skills along the way! – to create some amazing resources including: books, visual guides, blog, infographics, training courses, webinars, songs and animated films.

Several years later The Curly Hair Project is now an award-winning organisation known worldwide and my resources are endorsed by the world’s leading clinical psychologist, Professor Tony Attwood.

I very much hope you enjoy my work and that it helps make your life and relationships more manageable and enjoyable.

Thanks so much for visiting my website and taking an interest. Thanks to people like you, I am able to share my true gift with the world (which is writing and communicating) and really make a difference in this world.

“Thank you for all you have done and do Alis. Have been following you since the beginning, and you will never know how much help you have been to me and my family, and how much you helped me to change my own opinion of myself.”

“I am in awe of how much you have done for raising awareness of ASD in girls for me and the world at large. Without you I’d have been in the madhouse long ago. You have helped me understand my daughter and son better than majority of the copious websites & pages I have spent researching in 14yrs. Kudos to you. Our Angel xx”

“Bless your good work with which so many minds have been able to be understood & others to “understand others”. Thank you for your devotion, your passion to what God gave you, the talent & intelligence to understand aspergers & to write everything you understand.”
