On this weeks episode I am very happy to introduce Laurence Cobbaert the Chair of Eating Disorders Neurodiversity Australia (EDNA). Neurodiversity Australia is a non-for profit organisation that is focused on advocating on behalf of neurodivergent Australians affected by eating disorders. Laurence holds a Bachelor of Psychological Science and a Masters of Philosophy in Gender Studies both from the University of Adelaide and from her current completion of her PhD at UNSW. Where Laurence is currently undertaking further research into sensory perceptions, eating disorders and neurodiversity. At Neurodiversity Australia all 5 board members within the organisation identify as being neurodivergent with Laurence also having lived experience of having had Atypical Anorexia.
