Rachel Dorsey is an autistic speech language pathologist who excels at teaching non-autistic therapists to better understand and support our neurodivergent clients. Rachel is on a mission to illuminate the many ways that seemingly “effective” strategies can actually wreak havoc on the lives of our autistic clients.
But she doesn’t stop there: Rachel also teaches us what to do instead. Rachel is the course creator and instructor for Goal Writing for Autistic Students: A Neurodiversity-Affirming Approach, where she teaches therapists exactly how to wade through incomplete, deficits-based IEPs and nevertheless write perfectly neurodiversity-affirming goals. Rachel is also a guest instructor in The Learn Play Thrive Approach to Autism.
