    We will be talking to Penny Robinson, who is an Assistant Lecturer at Monash University in Australia, doing a mixture of research and teaching. Penny also volunteers for the ‘I CAN Network,’ and is also one of the Young Adults group leaders for Aspergers Victoria, Australia. Penny was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome at the age of 14.5 in, in Year 9, in 1997. This July, it’ll be 18 years since Penny’s diagnoses. On the show, Penny will be telling us all about the work she does in the autism community. You can find out more about Penny on her website http://sphpm.blogspot.com.au/2015/01/researcher-profile-penny-robinson.html


    Excitingly, we are also looking forward to talking to one of Positively Autistic’s own radio show hosts, Jeanette Purkis. Jeanette is also on the spectrum herself and has a professional connection with Penny. We will be talking to Jeanette all about the topic of moving home, and the stress this can implicate to those on the spectrum.


    Don’t forget, as always, you can join us in the chat room to join in on the discussion, call in to ask questions on 1-619-393-2848 or call in via the Skype link.

    Positively Autistic - Jeanette's Autism Show

    in Lifestyle

    This is Jeanette Purkis's radio show where she and invited guests talk about all things Autism. Jeanette is an Autistic author, advocate and public speaker and is passionate about empowering people on the Autism spectrum to live fulfilled and positive lives. Jeanette is a keen advocate for inclusion and appropriate support for people with Autism spectrum conditions in such areas as employment, education, parenting and access to health services.


    This week, Jeanette will be speaking with academic and one of the three founding members of the I CAN Network, Penny Robinson, about the work of the Network, particularly with Autistic young people. The I CAN Network offers a rethink on autism: making autism mean “I Can”, not “I Can’t”, and focusing on the strengths on the spectrum rather than deficits. The Network is currently doing great things. Further information on the I CAN Network can be found on their website: http://icannetwork.com.au 


    Penny is an Assistant Lecturer in the Women’s Health Research Program at the School of Public Health and Preventative Medicine at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Penny has a diagnosis of Asperger syndrome and believes that the strengths of this far outweigh the deficits.  She has won awards for her research and is passionate about medical research, epidemiology and women's health.

    Positively Autistic - Jeanette's Autism Show

    in Lifestyle

    This is Jeanette Purkis's radio show where she and invited guests talk about all things Autism. Jeanette is an Autistic author, advocate and public speaker and is passionate about empowering people on the Autism spectrum to live fulfilled and positive lives. Jeanette is a keen advocate for inclusion and appropriate support for people with Autism spectrum conditions in such areas as employment, education, parenting and access to health services.


    This week Jeanette will be speaking with Jeff Craig, an epigenetic researcher at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute. Jeanette has asked friends and contacts to come up with some questions for Jeff given that genetic research can be a little bit contentious. This show could generate some differences of opinion and robust discussion - often a good thing.


    Jeff Craig decribes himself as a researcher at work and in the garden. In his early career, he was locked inside a dark room for a few years studying human chromosomes. Seven years ago he saw the light and started working with human early life cohorts, which made his life much more interesting. He now blames epigenetics for every chronic illness, spouts forth such phrases as "you are what your mother ate" and is just starting to produce evidence to support these ideas. He believes that students, General Practitioners, and the public need to know about his crazy ideas and frequently speaks to them to get feedback to inspire his research. He is also obsessed with twins and thinks that they hold the key to understanding to roots of all human health problems. Jeff's aim is to use the science of 'epigenetics' to detect autisms early and to help understand the causes and mechanisms of autisms.

    As we move forward into the eighth month and step of Possibilities, we will begin to see life as exciting. As we become clear on what it is that we truly want, we can narrow down the possibilities that will take us to our fearless path. The last eight months have prepared us to take the next risks, to open our eyes and hearts to the possibilities before us. As we continue to step out of our comfort zone and risk, we will be more fearless.
