Judy Blake’s Speaking Topics:
- Everybody Counts: Special Needs in the Workplace – Employing those with special needs can be a challenge. And it’s not always easy to recognize those differences. Judy teaches compassion, tolerance, and understanding for coworkers that are an asset to the company but might behave differently than most.
- I Can’t See You’re Different: Autism, Anxiety Disorder, and OCD – These hidden disabilities are all around us. They are challenges to people around you without your even knowing it. Judy helps the audience learn how to be more tolerant and understanding.
- Why Won’t Tom Look Me in the Eye? Hidden Disabilities Are All Around You – You probably don’t realize that those who act differently might have a hidden special need that places them on the spectrum of autism. Judy shows how to be more compassionate and understand that some behaviors are based on someone’s brain chemistry and how to accept them even though they may be different.
