Wanting to be accepted or heard is a universal experience and desire.           
Understanding ourselves can be one of the ways we connect with others.                           
My next guest Justin, is doing exactly that.    He created his own space in the Autistic community and shares how stimming is completely natural. Along with words that are felt and create awareness of the neurodivergent experience through poetry  We talk about being parents, social challenges and relationships.                   
This was a really flowy talk!
