Thank you for visiting The Ashlie Project.

This is the space where we, Michael and Jacquie Parkes, a husband with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and a neurotypical wife, share the joys and challenges of our unique marriage. Together we also raise two children, one of whom has disabilities. From our lived experience we offer insights, strategies and training to support others in similar circumstances.

This project supports individuals and families living with ASD and any other type of disability. Most of our services and resources are FREE. Our main aim is to provide a safe space and to let others like us know they are not alone.  

From our family to you... welcome to The Ashlie Project.
