Our team contacted Rory to ask for his photo, and this is what he wants to say to all the viewers of "The Infinite Mind":
"I would like to say 'hi' to all the viewers of 'The Infinite Mind' and send my best wishes to everyone involved. It's a great job you're doing to help promote awareness of autism and celebrate what we can achieve in life. Always believe in yourselves and what you can do to make the world a better place." Hope this is OK? Thanks, and stay in touch! All the best. Rory"
