Misdiagnosis in the Autistic Community
May 01, 2021 Season 4 Episode 3

This week's panel line up consisted of Emily, mum Lisa with her 14 year old daughter Ayla.
Emily has spent her life being diagnosed with depression, anxiety and mental health conditions. It wasn't until she was 26 that somebody asked if she had ever considered she was autistic. During the start of the first lock down Emily received her autism diagnosis. She speaks about the relief the diagnosis brought to her, how her life has changed since and her work going forward to aid acceptance and inclusion for the autistic community. 
Joining Emily and ourselves was Lisa and Ayla who have began the journey to diagnosis. 

We speak inclusion in the workplace, exams and mainstream schooling.
