Autistic kids grow up to become autistic adults and people seem to forget that. Each month Tyla is joined by a guest who is also autistic and together they aim to demystify the transition to adulthood. If you're part of the elite, the 1-2% of the population that is autistic and feel alone navigating the non-autistic world, want to hear how other autistic adults manage their traits or just hang out with people who get you for an hour, then this is the show for you.
