Haley Moss is a neurodiversity expert, public speaker and author of four books that guide neurodivergent individuals through professional and personal challenges.

We talk about Haley's latest book, "The Young Autistic Adult’s Independence Handbook,” which shares the “unwritten rules” of adulthood and life advice for autistic young adults. Haley also talks about her own experience as an autistic child and adult:

  • How she learned she is autistic at the age of 9, and gave her first public talk about autism at age 13
  • Her career journey to become the first openly autistic lawyer in Florida
  • Why interdependence and asking for help are important parts of young adulthood
  • The power of being an advocate in your local community
