Christine Motokane is a young woman with autism. Diagnosed at age four, she was one of the earlier children to be fully included in elementary school, middle school and high school. Early intervention and helpful support from family, friends and professionals has allowed Christine to overcome challenges in her life. Come December 2015, she will receive her BA in Psychology from Loyola Marymount University.

She is a passionate self advocate that has authored a book, “Working the Double Shift A Young Woman’s Journey with Autism”. Christine’s goal is for the world to understand and accept individuals on the autism spectrum, and is excited to join the ASLA board to lend a voice to the organization.
