Jo Farmer

Jo Farmer was diagnosed late in life with Autism having struggled all her life, school, work and life to fit in. With the resultant effect on confidence. Based on her own experiences she now seeks to help others better understand and utilise the skills of autistic and Neuro-diverse people. Neuro-diverse people are often badly misunderstood but have so much to contribute, and have made the modern world possible. She now knows what it is like to feel accepted and valued for how and who she is. Based on this she wants to help business to embrace these skills. She is a blogger, has spoken on podcasts, conferences and panels how to understand autistic people better.
