DDI on Autism Radio Show Features Leslie Ochroch

Our guest tomorrow is Leslie Ochroch.  Leslie is an active and committed advocate in both her work and personal life who values all individuals but keeps a laser focus on the contributions of persons who are on the spectrum.  

Leslie’s efforts are compelling in that the kinds of employment and job skills she promotes move well beyond the traditional job matches made in tech areas. Rather, she is working to expand the range of interactional abilities that are recognized by industry. Leslie self-identifies as neurodiverse and is the mother of a neurodiverse child.
