Charlotte has known since she was a child that her brain didn't quite work like those around her. It wasn't until she was in her late 20s, though, that she decided to pursue an evaluation for autism spectrum disorder. Ever since, she has been championing autism acceptance and neurodiversity education in her personal and work life. As a learning and development facilitator for a major financial institution, she collaborates with colleagues and co-workers, using her voice and actions to show that autism does not always look like the stereotype people see in their heads - it also looks like her.
Charlotte attended OCALICON for the first time in 2020, and in her own words, "it changed her life." Listen to her story and hear about one specific session that changed everything for her.
