ABOUT OUR HOSTS:
BECCA LORY, CAS, BCCS was diagnosed on the autism spectrum as an adult and has since become an active advocate and life coach for individuals on the autism spectrum.

Having spent four years supporting the autism community through non-profit work, Ms. Lory decided to branch into autism consulting, in-service trainings, and life coaching as a solo venture while developing improvisational workshops to assist adults on the spectrum with the practice of independent living skills.
