Librarian and autism advocate, Lauren Melissa, wasn’t diagnosed with autism until age 23. Because autism is so seldom detected in women and girls, Lauren had to do some digging on her own to finally reach her diagnosis.

In this episode, we discuss the intersectionality of race and disability, why women are so often left out of the autism conversation and how race, gender and subsequently access play a part in late diagnoses.
