Carly Jones MBE

We're back! After a much longer break than intended, we're kicking off season 3 with a very special guest, Carly Jones MBE. I found Carly on twitter last year and have been an avid follower ever since. Carly is a mum of 3 girls, 2 of whom are autistic. It was during their diagnosis process that she too would later be diagnosed as autistic. We talk all about this time in their lives, what autism means to them as a family, and how Carly feels about her diagnosis being missed when she was younger. Carly readily admits that once she discovered she was autistic, she found her true life purpose, to try and help other autistic girls. Ever since then she has been a massive advocate, campaigning, raising awareness, and educating the world on autism in girls. We speak all about her advocacy work, which has gone so well that last year Carly was awarded an MBE Useful Links from our chat Carly's website: http://britishautismadvocate.simpl.com/ Carly's twitter: https://twitter.com/CarlyJonesMBE Epidemic of Knowledge - Carly's film about diagnosis: https://www.reelhouse.org/olley/epidemic-of-knowledge
