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

  • 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
