Chris Leasmith

Chris Leasmith

The Grumpy Gits Podcast
United Kingdom

Chris is an autism & disability advocate, he has two sons, Harrison who is 8 & Logan who is 6.

In November 2017 Harrison was diagnosed as autistic, in a frantic bid to understand more he threw himself into education where ever he could find it.

Chris started a social media account on Twitter & became part of the SEND community where 100's of like minded parents and autistics gave him guidance, belief, advice & support.

His first project was founding 'SENsational You' with 4 other wonderful SEND parents with a YouTube channel & a Facebook page, it provided an outlet for SEND parents to tell their stories.

Chris's 2nd project was to team up with Duncan Casburn and The Grumpy Dads Podcast was born, a podcast that had many amazing guests and was a chance to lighten the stressful world of SEND.

Chris & Duncan interviewed Simon on the podcast & we all enjoyed the interview so much we decided to work together on what's now the worlds largest disability podcast.
