Today I’m chatting with autism mom and founder of ND Renegade, Sally Willbanks. Sally is coming to us all the way from Australia! On this episode, she is sharing her story with both her son and daughter. Her son was diagnosed with ASD first and Sally talks all about the early days of their journey and her concerns as a parent. More recently, her daughter was evaluated and she is on the spectrum as well. It was really interesting to hear the differences in her two kids and just how much Sally has changed since her son was diagnosed vs her daughter. We also discuss her apparel company, ND Renegade, which offers inclusive and fashionable designs that highlight neurodiversity. Sally is a very accomplished artist in Australia and she wanted to combine her two passions, art and advocacy, in a way that could include her family. Thus, ND Renegade was born. Through her company, Sally is not only providing an excellent product, but also giving back to the community. Her mission is so important and Sally fully embodies it. We also talk about their decision to homeschool and Sally’s very honest (and needed!) social media series “what not to say to an autism mom”. We had such a great conversation and I hope you enjoy listening!
