Max gave an Update on his YouTube Channel MaxiAspie today about the future of the Channel and what he has been up to since his last video which was 9 months ago. Max gave a brief update on the Channel saying "time has gone very quickly, but the plan is to come back to YouTube, but maybe a video every 2 weeks with better quality."

Today though the Main News that Max wanted to share was that The Autism Connections Season 5 will be airing this week alongside National Autistic Acceptance Week!

This Year will keep the last few years formatm but with a Surprise Guest for the Last Episode being episode 7!

3 Guests will be filmed Online and the other 3 guests will be In Person Interviews!

Max said "I Still feel the format works it reminds me of when I first started this during COVID19 and having the Online and In Person aspect really reminds me of that time during COVID19 and then after, Plus the Surprise Guest this year is amazing and again the only clue I can give away is they was involved in the Buckland Review, thats all I can say"
