Limited to 400 registrants.
Lola Dada-Olley is a mom, wife, attorney, TEDx speaker, writer, advocate and podcast host. In 2020, Lola launched her podcast, titled “Not Your Mama’s Autism”, chronicling her family’s multi-generational autism journey from inception, her brother’s autism diagnosis in 1989, to the present-day health care and education related needs of both her children. In 2021, Lola started her column, titled “The Caregiver’s Chronicles”, where she writes about her journey as a lifelong caregiver and the considerations parents like her must make while striving to achieve her own goals and dreams in the process. In 2021, Lola also gave a TEDx speech, titled, “Your Path is Your Purpose”, where she talked about how a series of seemingly disjointed events led her to where her present-day purpose lies today.
