Mother's Perspective - Jackie Pilgrim USA
Self-advocate, SEN Advocate for Autism, Epilepsy, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and Mental Illness, Public Speaker, Entrepreneur, Artist, Blogger, Poet and Parent to a young adult who challenges the stigma of having disabilities.

A survivor of emotional trauma, and profound physical and sexual abuse, Jackie managed to find her way to self-love, self-awareness, and self-acceptance in a world wanting little to do with her and dubbing her difference as a deficit. She is passionate about encouraging parents of neurodivergent children and young adults to listen and observe without judgment, to accept as well as offer choice, to see more rather than less.
