Rebecca Furlong has received Bachelor of Education, Bachelor of Special Education, and Master of Education degrees from Memorial University of Newfoundland. Having worked with Autistic individuals for well over twenty years in various capacities, she now works for the Provincial Government and volunteers as part of the administration team for Autism Newfoundland and Labrador on Facebook. A proud Autistic activist for both Autistic individuals and their families, Rebecca is very excited to be joining ASNL’s Board of Directors to help us better serve the needs of our community. Since Rebecca lives in both worlds as an Autistic and as the parent of an Autistic child, her main goal is to help bridge the gap that currently exists in our community between Autistics and parents. She strongly believes that by getting everyone on the same page and working together, we can make a difference.
