Haley Moss was age 3 when she was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. She was non-verbal and her parents were told she would likely have trouble with everyday activities as an adult. Ms. Moss later became a fierce advocate for others with autism. By age 15 she had authored a book and presented regularly on her experiences with autism. Ms. Moss later graduated from the University of Miami School of Law and was admitted to the Florida Bar. She espouses a “no limits” philosophy when it comes to employing those with autism, focusing on what they can do as “opposed to what they might not be able to do.”

“A disability generally is not all-encompassing, it is just part of who someone is, not everything they are. Everyone is unique, everyone has strengths and weaknesses and everyone has talent.”
