Neurodiversity - Functioning on the Spectrum

Getting the news that your child is autistic is difficult for any parent. Hear from Fredrik Nilsson, Principal Engineer at Dell EMC who describes the day his life turned upside down 2.5 years ago when his daughter asked to do a neuropsychiatric evaluation because she felt she was “not like everyone else”. Doctors later confirmed that she has Level 1 Autism. Fredrik shares his personal experience as a parent working in IT coming to terms with the diagnosis, and shares ways that parents can support a child who has autism and empower them to find success in life.
