Autism and speaking engagements

I’m a mother on the autism spectrum raising two children with autism, one with Level 1 Autism and one with Level 3 Autism. I’ve been enjoying giving talks all over the country. Send me an email at to discuss opportunities.

Over the past few years, I’ve declined many speaking opportunities, primarily due to fear. It’s been a persistent struggle since childhood—whenever I’ve had to present in front of a group, I’ve burst out laughing out of nervousness. It still happens during work meetings, and the thought of it happening in front of hundreds of people paralyzes me. However, this year, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and face it head-on.

Three weeks ago, I spoke at the ABAI conference in Las Vegas, and just last weekend, I gave a presentation at the Profound Alliance Summit in Boston. How did it go? Well, I’d say it went well both times. Despite some technical issues this weekend that caught me off guard, I could still give my presentation.

Here’s a quote from my upcoming book:

The fear of failure and suffering can often be more daunting than the actual experience itself. The real failure is letting fear of failure stop you from trying.

Eileen Lamb

Warning: I will show up to conferences with a cowboy hat 🙂
