What is Autism awareness? People talk a lot about Autism Awareness, but its definition can often be murky and unclear. That’s why in this week’s podcast Lorraine and Joel try to answer the question What’s the deal with Autism Awareness?
We look at the timeline of where it started, where it is now, and where we see it going in the future!
We also talk about the best way to get your Autistic child ready for any transitions such as Christmas or packaging changes.
So join us as we explore Autism Awareness:
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.
