Autism in Heels – Jennifer Cook (formerly Cook O’Toole)
The face of autism is changing, and more often than we realize, that face is wearing lipstick. Whether it’s bad perms, body image, sexuality or self-esteem, this game-changing talk reveals the woman inside one of autism’s most prominent figures. Jennifer Cook (formerly Cook O’Toole), like so many women and girls, fit the profile but remained unidentified, facing years of avoidable anxiety, eating disorders, volatile relationships, self-harm, and stunted independence. Now, she offers a love letter to all of us on the human spectrum, a journey of self-discovery, enrichment, and understanding (in iconic red stilettos), empowering every kind of differently-wired mind to become her own best differently-wired kind of wonderful.

It is November! Clocks have changed, Halloween came and went and now the holiday music is on! It all feels like a blur. Halloween is Marky’s favorite holiday, he loves to get dressed and loves to go trick or treating. He does NOT eat ANY candy, but loves to collect it. This was his first year in 17 years that we did not participate. Thanks to COVID, we opted to stay home, He has become a little anxious about it all and spent much of the day saying Halloween was canceled. I am hoping 2021 will make up for the lost fun of 2020!
