Parent Carer Nicky Clark Reveals Her Own Autism Diagnosis

November 24, 2015

Nicky Clark was one of the first people I ‘met’ on Twitter.

As I told her tonight, ever since I’ve ‘known’ her, I have considered her to be an amazing mother, carer and person.

Nicky Clark has two daughters with Autism. Ever since I have had online contact with her, she has been a disability rights campaigner and a campaigner for carers.

Yesterday, in an article for Ambitious About Autism, Nicky Clark revealed that she has recently been diagnosed with Autism herself.

I would like to put on record that this in no way at all changes anything I have ever felt for or about Nicky Clark.

She and her family have always had my very best wishes and my full support, and that will never change.

I don’t even feel that I can welcome Nicky Clark into ‘my’ world-the world of disability-because I believe that as a carer and a very supportive parent of her two disabled children, she has always been a part of it anyway.

I link to her very well written article simply because I believe it should be read.

It is yet another piece of proof that anyone, at any age, can be diagnosed with any disability.
