    About Bliss Road:
    In this sometimes funny, often devastating memoir, Martha Engber describes the arduous journey toward discovering the invisible roadblock that ran her life off course: her psychological distress is the result of being the neurotypical daughter of a dad with undiagnosed Autism Spectrum Disorder, a condition that affects over 75 million people worldwide.

    Martha uses personal anecdotes and research about the emergence of ASD as a diagnosis to explain the psychological, emotional and social challenges she faced as a child, then as an adult and parent. Along the way, she shows the sometimes harrowing, but eminently rewarding, route others can follow to chase down the source of their family angst and so reach a more blissful future.
    Martha Engber is the author of Winter Light, an IPPY Gold Medal Winner in Young Adult Fiction. Her other books include the novels The Falcon, The Wolf and the Hummingbird, and The Wind Thief, and the Resource for Writers, Growing Great Characters from the Ground Up. A speaker and workshop facilitator, she’s had dozens of short stories and poems published in literary magazines and a play produced in Hollywood. She lives in California with her husband, bike and surfboard. She invites readers to connect via her website, MarthaEngber.com.

    Alex Plank and Jenny Palmiotto discuss "An Eventing with Ezra"

    The film Ezra follows Max Bernal (Bobby Cannavale), a stand-up comedian living with his father (Robert De Niro), while struggling to co-parent his autistic son Ezra (introducing William Fitzgerald) with his ex-wife (Rose Byrne).
    Alex Plank, Associate Producer
    Alex Plank is a trailblazing autistic self-advocate and a pioneering leader in the autistic human rights. As an associate producer of the critically acclaimed movie 'Ezra,' Alex has made significant strides in both behind-the-scenes and on-camera roles. He is a champion of authentic and humanistic representation of autistic individuals in the film industry. With a deep commitment to challenging ableism, Alex advocates for a world where autistic people are valued and respected. This commitment extends to a broader condemnation of ableism in all its forms, with a specific focus on dismantling the barriers within the film industry that marginalize autistic talent and narratives.
    Jenny Palmiotto – Founder of Love & Autism
    Jenny Palmiotto, Psy. D, LMFT, is a distinguished figure at the forefront of the neurodiversity movement and the visionary founder of Love & Autism. Her organization stands as a profound statement against systemic ableism and champions the belief that autistic rights are human rights. Jenny is committed to challenging the prevailing narrative that autistic individuals do not desire or require the universal human experiences of love, authenticity, and belonging. Through her advocacy, she promotes a society that fully embraces neurodiversity, advocating for acceptance and understanding in all facets of life. As the owner and clinical director of The Family Guidance and Therapy Center, Dr. Palmiotto has pioneered a model of neurodiversity-affirming therapy that supports autistic individuals and their families. This innovative approach focuses on enhancing strengths, fostering relationships, and promoting positive self-identity among autistic individuals, guided by principles of respect, understanding, and acceptance.

    Scott on Fall 2023

    Scott on Fall 2023

    Normal life has made it difficult this fall to maintain the podcast, my blogs, and my social media accounts. I have no idea how other working parents with podcasts and blogs manage to produce any content during a school year.
    Trying to produce episodes at least monthly proved beyond my stamina.
    After months like November, I find myself envying full-time creators who earn a living producing quality podcasts, videos, blog posts, and social media. They have tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of subscribers and followers. Their podcasts have sponsors. Many of them have small teams or they outsource editing and transcription of content.
    And then there are the dedicated hobbyists. That’s me: a slightly insane, certainly overwhelmed, and sometimes on-schedule hobbyist.

    How can parents support their disabled children into adulthood? Will our children find meaningful places in society? Sadly, workplaces don’t always accommodate differences.
    Mark Lyons and his wife are former teachers. With their son Samuel, they operate SammySocksEtc, an online store offering cozy socks, coffees, and teas. Like many disabled adults, Samuel struggled with traditional employment. The Lyons sought to provide Samuel with a safe and supportive work environment.
