Kaye Liao Banez
Tenacious, Compassionate, Advocate
I’m a children’s author, a Communications and Marketing consultant, and my most important role: being a mother to Lazarus and Estella. My eldest child was diagnosed with ASD at three. Since then, I’ve become a fierce advocate for autism awareness and inclusion. I have an extensive background working in mental health and with youth with special needs. My specialization is in accommodations for K-12 programs for children with special needs. I am pleased to be involved with AutismBC as I support their mission and it allows me to support other families and help them navigate the educational system in BC.
Interesting Fact: I once taught the first-ever Filipino cuisine cooking course offered in a post-secondary institution in BC.
