Kabie Brook will be answering your questions in our live online Q&A, Tuesday 3 November 2015, 12.30pm (GMT).
Kabie Brook is an Autistic activist and campaigner. Co-founder and current chairperson of ARGH (Autism Rights Group Highland), she has 25 years experience working with and for Autistic people of all ages. Kabie is a member of the National Autism Strategy Governance Group (Scotland), is a Community Advisor for Police Scotland, has helped develop training materials for the National Autistic Society (NAS), and is currently working with Dinah Murray and Kevin Brook on the development of ASK (Autistic Space Kit app).
In 2014 she won an 'Autism Champion' award from Autism Network Scotland for her education and advocacy work.
Kabie is passionate about educating people to understand the communication styles and self advocacy attempts that can often be ignored or labelled as 'challenging', and believes that it is the Autistic community and those who use services that should be given the power to take control, and steer what is currently an inadequate system of 'existence' rather than 'living' for far too many people.
