Professional perspective

I really appreciate this podcast. As a speech language pathologist it is not only informative, the podcast sheds a human light on autism. It has given me a glimpse into the lives, triumphs, and tragedies, of families with loved ones with autism. I feel like it has helped me professionally and personally as I work with students with autism.

Horrified.

Neither of the hosts are autistic! Neither of them are “living with and coping with autism”, so why do they think this is their story to tell?! So inappropriate and ignorant. Also- what is “COPING with” supposed to mean?! Autism isn’t cancer

I love it, from a pediatric OT therapist

I have been listening since the beginning. These podcasters and their guests are my extended family after following them over the years. I appreciate their journeys and their honest perspective as family members of people with autism. Bonus- I get a laugh most episodes. Enjoy! Thank you Kirk and Graham.
