         Tony與英國政府,及其他國家的行業和國際機構合作,以增進一般人對這個高佔五分之一世界人口的神經多樣性人士個案,作深入了解和認識。對那些患有閱讀障礙、注意力缺陷多動症、自閉症,運動困難和運動障礙的人士而言,Tony認為,五份一人口比例的神經多樣性的普遍性,說明了那實屬整個遺傳秩序的其中一環,而非遺傳缺陷。他說明神經多樣性是遺傳機制上物種與遺傳秩序的多元的體現,是人類智力和創造力自然多樣性的反映。因此,Tony認為,我們必須全力去正視及肯定神經多樣性個體的才智、能力、就業技能和他們的非凡的潛力,並引列其中有關的名人:例如達芬奇(Leonardo da Vinci)、愛因斯坦(Einstein)、莫扎特(Mozart)等歷史天才,與及包括21世紀眾多公眾人物,例如蘋果電腦的喬布斯、微軟的蓋茨、英國航空企業家布蘭森、世界冠軍運動員比爾斯(Simone Biles)和有「水怪」之稱的奧運游泳王菲比斯(Michael Phelps)、演員湯漢斯(Tom Hanks)和愛瑪屈臣(Emma Watson)等。

        Tony認為,在這瞬息萬變的21世紀中,我們的文化,經濟和生活方式,有 需要重新定義以加以配合。在智力、能力和職業潛能的作重新認定分佈配置,方可使每個兒童和成年人,有可發揮其潛能的機會空間。

Tony has led the Foundation since it was established as a user led charity in 2007, initially as Chair then as CEO from 2010. Tony has been the driving force in promoting neurodiversity in the UK and campaigned for a neurodiverse paradigm in education, health services, employment and human resource management in the UK.


Tony works in partnership with the UK Government, national and international agencies across all business sectors to improve understanding and awareness of the 1 in 5 human beings who are neurodiverse; those with dyslexia, ADHD, autism, dyscalculia and dyspraxia. Tony argues that the very prevalence of neurodiversity is such that 1 in 5 of humankind can not be errors of genetics or ‘disordered’ – but rather, are a reflection, of the natural diversity of human intelligence and creativity.  Tony believes therefore that we must take a strength based approach to recognise the intelligence, ability, employability and remarkable potential of neurodiverse individuals, citing such historical genius as Leonardo da Vinci, Einstein, Mozart and numerous public figures in the 21st century including entrepreneurs, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Richard Branson; world champion athletes Simone Biles and Michael Phelps, actors Tom Hanks and Emma Watson.  Tony argues that in the 21st century and our rapidly changing culture, economy and lifestyles, we need to redefine what we mean by intelligence, ability and career potential that is relevant for the 21st century so that every child and adult can achieve their potential.


The  ADHD Foundation Neurodiversity Charity  has led the campaign for adherence to the National Institute for Clinical Excellence Guidelines in the care and treatment of ADHD in the UK. Tony is a leading figure in influencing Government policy and the deign and provision of public services so they better understand and meet the needs of the neurodiverse population to improve life chances through better and more inclusive education that reflects the explosion in neuroscience that enables and encourages innovation.


 Tony has also played a key role in the production of and as co author of two national reports on ADHD; A Lifetime Lost or a Lifetime Saved’ published in 2017 and sent to every MP and NHS Commissioner, this report highlighted the scientific evidence underpinning ADHD, prevalence and mental health outcomes. Tony also co authored the  ‘Bridging the Gap’ report published in 2017 and launched at the EU in Brussels on transition from CAMHS to AMHS for children’s mental health services, using ADHD as a case study. Tony also contributed to the DEMOS report on the’ Social and Economic Impact of ADHD, published in Feb 2018.


Tony has over 25 years as a mental health practitioner and consultant advisor to several voluntary and charity sector agencies. Tony advises several private sector businesses, NHS  and Health Care providers  on services specifically for the ADHD population.


Tony has also promoted a more holistic education to meet the needs of children in a rapidly changing world with the provision of school based mental health services and  parent skills programmes for parents and especially the parents of children with special needs so that parents are able to play a more proactive role in their child’s education, health and citizenship.


Tony is the recipient of several awards for his work in the field of neurodiversity,  ADHD, education and health and was listed in the FT Outstanding 100 top LGBTQ executives in 2017, 2018, 2019 for his work developing the ADHD Foundation and promoting neurodiversity in the workplace.
