Becca Lory Hector, CAS, BCCS was diagnosed on the autism spectrum as an adult and has since become a dynamic autism advocate, consultant, speaker, and author with dual certifications as a Certified Autism Specialist (CAS) and Cognitive Specialist (BCCS). With a focus on living an active, positive life, her work includes autism & neurodiversity consulting; public speaking engagements; a monthly blog, “Live Positively Autistic”; a weekly YouTube news show, “Neurodiversity Newsstand,”; and being an Assistant Editor/Feature Writer for Spectrum Women Magazine. An animal lover with a special affinity for cats, Becca spends most of her free time with her many animals, her husband Antonio Hector, and their Emotional Support Animal (ESA), Sir Walter Underfoot.
Becca and I discuss her path to self-determined decision making, with her ASD diagnosis as a jumping off point, and how it’s so critical that other autistics learn and practice this skill. She’s interested in quality of life, specifically creating quality of life assessments with autistic measures because these are typically created for the neurotypical person.
“There are so many people telling autistic people what to do and that can be dangerous. It’s important for us to pursue the quality of life that we want.” - Becca Lory Hector
