What’s the difference between Autism Awareness and Autism Acceptance? Why is it important? Which comes first? Are they linked?
This is what the Chew Crew discuss during the podcast this week, we discuss the intricacies around the two. Looking at the timelines of both, where they are placed within the community and whether you can have one without the other! We also end up talking about trucks – which is something you don’t want to miss trust me!
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.
