BIO

Vikie Shanks has seven children, six of which have autism, one with dyslexia and two with cerebral palsy. She is now a campaigner, author and speaker on dealing with and growing up with disabilities. Vikie developed a passion for doing whatever she can to change the system so that children with special needs no longer suffer. Vikie decided to set up an Autism Support Group and within three weeks she had 80 people seeking support, where none previously existed. Vikie also speaks on the value of transparent communication, a lesson vital both in life and in business. She talks about her life and her experiences of having children with autism at a recent TED Talk and has published a book Unravelled: The Inspirational True Story of a Journey Out of Darkness. In 2017, Netflix aired the exclusive documentary film, Kingdom of Us, about her children and Vikie. The film has won an award and been nominated for a further three.
