'One of my biggest ambitions is to change the way people perceive themselves in relation to neurodiversity, with the hope of influencing the outcomes in later life for children and reduce the challenges that adults are faced with on a daily basis.'
Every time we have a conversation about neurodiversity, we are making that change happen.'
