“Being dyslexic myself I experienced difficulty throughout school. Teachers did not realise that I needed teaching differently, and that this had no correlation to my intelligence. Moreover, on entering the workplace I faced discrimination for my dyslexia. Hearing the struggles of children and their parents today, I am determined to help improve awareness and resources around neurodiversity, for people to witness the strengths this ‘out of the box’ thinking brings and how determined such individuals have to become”.
Joining SPELD NSW in 2021 Charlie looks forward to bringing diversity to the board. She spent time in her previous company focusing on neurodiversity in the HR space. Well-being & entrepreneurship are also areas of interest.
