Autistic Lawyer

In The Politics of Autism, I discuss the employment of adults with autism and other developmental disabilities.

Lulu Ramadan at The Palm Beach Post:
 When Haley Moss was diagnosed with autism at 3 years old, doctors told her parents that she would be lucky to graduate high school and get a minimum-wage job.
Two decades later, Moss is a law school graduate, a practicing attorney, a published author and an inspiring voice for children on the autism spectrum.
Moss, 24, prepared a speech for a Boca Raton gala Saturday, where she’s being honored with an award from nonprofit Unicorn Children’s Foundation, about changing the conversation surrounding autism.
“It’s about dreams and following dreams and having no limits,” said Moss, a Miami-based attorney.
