This program is a place for discussion of issues around Autism and related topics - mental health, education, employment, inclusion, identity and cultural differences between Autistic and non-autistic people. Jeanette usually interview guests who are doing good work in the autism community.
For this episode, Everyday Aspergers author Samantha Craft interviews Dr Emma Goodall and Jeanette Purkis about their work in autism advocacy and as authors of a number of books, including The Guide to Good Mental Health on the Autism Spectrum (with Dr Jane Nugent). It is an amazing discussion covering topics which include diagnosis and identity, the Autistic peer group and belonging and thoughts for the future directions of the Autism community,
