Description:

The accidental inclusion of 5-year-old Calum in a social skills group not suited to meet his needs set in motion a career path change for this speaker, eventually making her the island expert on autism spectrum diagnosis and treatment. See how combining a love of football and a passion for inclusion created a path for diverse populations and their families to integrate into our communities at large.
