94. Not All Autism is the Same

podcast Jul 07, 2022

In this episode, I am talking about the perceptions and misconceptions that people have about autism when their lives have not yet been impacted by autism. With the increased number of families whose lives are being impacted by autism, surely more and more people's lives will be impacted.  Currently, 1 in 44 children here in the US are diagnosed and that number is not far behind Internationally.

Autism is a different way of thinking and experiencing the world and each autistic individual will have different challenges and struggles along the way. The saying when you have met one person with autism, you have met one person with autism is so true.

You know, one of the questions that I get a lot is WHEN WILL I KNOW if my child will be able to live on their own or have to live with me for the rest of their life?  Have you ever wondered?  Well, in this episode, I address this exact question.

I also go into detail about a few of the misconceptions about autistic individuals and some things for you to consider.  

I am hopeful you find it helpful.
