Hi everyone! On today's episode I talk to the very knowledgable Christa who is an autistic self-advocate from Texas and runs the the internationally recognised neurodiversity lifestyle blog Neurodivergent Rebel and Instagram account @neurodivergentrebel. Christa's blog pushes for acceptance of neurological difference and respect for the autonomy of neurodivergent people.  Christa also manages Neurodivergent Consulting which is a consulting agency that works with businesses “to create new policies that work to attract and increase tenure of current and future neurodivergent employees”. The philosophy of Neurodivergent Consulting is to advocate for accessible workplaces where neurodivergent employees will be able to fully implement their unique talents and fresh perspectives. The agency analyzes the policies of interested workplaces for how they tap into, or hinder, the creative power of neurodivergent employees, including how accommodating these workspaces are to the sensory and predictability needs of autistic people. We chat about: Both being diagnosed with autism and compare the process it took us to get there Christa's coaching and consulting services Autism in the workplace and how much we both hate open plan offices! Christa's social media presence and the #askingautistic hashtag that Christa is the pioneered How Christa is coping with the pandemic, daily life and their special interests Christa's links: All of Christa's links to social media, store, Patreon, etc can be found here: https://linktr.ee/NeurodivergentRebel My 21andsensory links: @21andsensory on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/21andsensory/ 21andsensory Blog - https://21andsensory.wordpress.com Podcast - https://21andsensory.wordpress.com/21andsensory-podcasts/ Want to be on my podcast?
