Autism Acceptance what next?
The last couple of episodes have covered Autism Awareness and Autism Acceptance. This week we discuss moving passed Autism Acceptance… what comes next?
Joel has a theory that he calls “Autism Knowledge” where he discusses that the next step after Acceptance is Autism Knowledge. This is a radical theory about the complete integration of Autistic people into society.

Listen to other topics from the Sensory Matters show here.
The Sensory Matters Podcast came about from a desire to showcase ‘real’ people’s stories and experiences of sensory difficulties in a neurotypical world. More than that though, it was important to host a range of voices to mirror the diversity of this community and not to focus on the downsides but to draw attention to the possibilities, opportunities, and those who have found strategies and success, enabling them to live the life they desire. By sharing these stories we hope to do two things; raise awareness and in turn acceptance and through that change the world we live in to be more encompassing of the rich tapestry and vast differences seen across all people and to stop viewing the world through only that individuals eyes, but to open peoples minds to other ways of thinking.
We have a core team of presenters and hosts who are either on the spectrum, have sensory difficulties or are connected to people who are. We also invite experts and top speakers to tackle key topics.
If you have a topic or story you think we should cover then do get in touch, we are not scared to tackle any subject matter, we feel strongly to drive progress discussion must be had.
