Autism affects so many of our lives and families, and yet so many of us know very little about it, make unfair assumptions about people who live with it, or make crass jokes about people, using it as a derogatory term. In this episode of the Black Swan Podcast, I interview, the amazing Deborah Brownson, who recently won an MBE for her incredible work around autism. I am so glad that she is here in Morecambe Bay, though her work has a national and international reach – and rightly so!
World Autism Awareness Day is a good time to talk about Autism! The podcast is full of profound wisdom from a woman who has two sons with Autism and is working tirelessly to raise awareness, change perspectives and create practical resources and support networks to help people who live with Autism and the carers who support them. I hope you find it interesting, challenging, comforting and inspiring. Here are the links to the podcast, depending on your preferences!:
