Carly is an Autism advocate, consultant and professional speaker. She didn’t receive her Autism diagnosis until she was 32, after two of her daughters were diagnosed. She found it a battle to get the voices of Autistic women heard and in 2008 started to notice a lack of understanding and resources when it came to autism and girls.
In this letter Carly shares her thoughts on why she is supporting our Now is the Time campaign, and how a future Minister for Disabled Children and Families can help disabled children and their families get the best start in life.
Dear future Minister for Disabled Children and Families,
My name is Carly. I am an autism advocate, the mother of autistic daughters, and autistic myself.
Like many British disabled parents, we want our children to have a better tomorrow.
We have the passion and the drive. We won’t stop until all UK children have equity, including our disabled children. We don’t want anybody left behind.
