Wendela Whitcomb Marsh

Wendela Whitcomb Marsh is an award-winning author, sought-after speaker, and Founder/CEO of Adult Autism Assessment & Services. She loves writing about and for late-diagnosed autistic adults, who often struggle to find recognition and acceptance for themselves without the need to mask. Her own late husband and two of their three children were all late-diagnosed autists. Marsh holds an MA in educational psychology and an RSD: Religious Studies Doctorate in pastoral counseling with a specialization in autism. After a career in special education and psychology, Marsh retired and moved with her children to Oregon. She started writing books and found that she loved writing. When she learned that many autistic adults, especially women, trans, and nonbinary folk, find it difficult to access autism assessment with professionals who understand masking and late diagnosis, she started a nationwide group practice to try to fill that need.
