Autism and ADHD Advocacy

I am an advocate for neurodiversity. All ecosystems on the planet thrive and survive because of diversity.

I am grateful to the allistic allies who wish to help neurodivergent people correct the number of incorrect, dangerous and pervasive myths about autism and overall toxic view that most people seem to have of autistic people. We need you with us. Thank you!

I Am Available to Speak to your Workplace or School

As the saying goes… #nothingaboutuswithoutus

It is upsetting to see conferences, symposiums and professional development put together by neurotypical people talking ABOUT US, without consultation WITH US.

In 2022 (and with Dylan Alcott as our Australian of The Year), we are more than ready to have people with lived experience telling their stories.

Go straight to the source. We’re here, eager to help you make change in a way that is respectful, accurate and exciting.

Neurodivergent people deserve their place (and voice) in the world as much as neurotypical people.

It is absolutely one of my life missions to improve the levels of respect, inclusion and celebration of autistic people.
