So, who are we?:

We are Judy Endow and Kelly Mahler and have been friends for almost 10 years. We first met in a hotel in the middle of a desert right after experiencing our first haboob (which is an intense windstorm). Since meeting, we discovered that we shared a lot of common interests and have enjoyed collaborating on multiple projects over the years.

Her latest book is Autistically Thriving: Reading Comprehension, Conversational Engagement, and Living a Self-Determined Life Based on Autistic Neurology and her most recent work is the Executive Function Assessment.
