"I've been preparing to move and I know it's gonna be a big change, so I've been prepping myself, sort of, and trying to prepare what in my routine is gonna stay the same. That's brought me a lot of comfort. I also went to a support group for late-diagnosed autistis last week, and I got some amazing advice from them. They said to have all your comfort items easily accessible,” says Ziale Evans. Ziale joins this episode to discuss how moving takes a toll on her mental health, the sensory nightmares of shopping, and creating videos on social media.

“Design, and art as a larger umbrella, is storytelling. Just like music is storytelling, even without lyrics. I think that we all tell stories. I really feel that every single thing we experience is some sort of story. We tell ourselves stories; everything that comes out of our mouths is a story. It's how we navigate the world,” says Neisha Hirsch. Neisha joins this episode of Autism Stories to discuss the impact of storytelling on our lives, her business Shadow Sage Designs, and how tarot has been helpful to her.

“Sometimes autistic movement differences can cause pain or functional limitations, and sometimes they are truly just differences. They may look different from the "reference norm," but they actually work just fine for that person and their body. It takes a lot of teamwork between the patient and the provider in order to tease that out,” says Iris Warchall. Iris joins this episode of Autism Stories to discuss autistic movement differences, being a physical therapist, and anti-ableist and neurodiversity-affirming healthcare.

“The last commissions paper about the future of clinical autism research I think is a very good example of how there is mismatch between the priorities and needs of autistic people and the priorities of researchers. Autistic people should be included as equal partners in autism research, but that is currently rarely happening,” says Heini Natri. Heini joins this episode of Autism Stories to discuss her career as a computational biologist and functional genomics as well talk about research that benefits the autistic community.

“The lines are so meaningful. Whenever you're capturing something, the lines alone can trigger the mind to know what you're looking at- just the lines. Using clean lines and just spotlighting certain colors, I'm filtering out all of that extra information that even neurotypical minds have to sort through,” says Amanda Hebert Hughes. Amanda joins this episode of Autism Stories to discuss creating art that caters to neurodivergent minds as well as being an author and illustrator for a children's book.

“There are so many community priorities that have just not had anywhere close to adequate research, and I think that part of the reason why the research hasn't gone further, is because they haven't, for the most part, they have not had an adequate theory of autism. They're trying to make sense of this phenomena without a uniform theory to ground it on.” Dr. Wenn Lawson and Fergus Murray return to Autism Stories to discuss their website which is a central resource for learning about monotropism.

“There are certain things that neurotypical researchers are doing that I appreciate, but they get things wrong. Fundamentally they don’t understand the experiential side of things. Then experience alone doesn’t always work because a lot of us are living with multiple diagnoses so I love the idea of teaming up and finding patterns and themes and starting to understand,” says Denielle Rose. Denielle Rose joins this episode to discuss critical psychology, neurodivergent households, and autism assessments. To learn more about Denielle visit https://www.Instagram.com/autistic_prose.

“When I came back off my period of time out with burnout I suddenly realized we need a top down disclosure approach to mental health problems. If senior doctors aren’t disclosing, if patients get that doctors don’t get that then it becomes more stigmatized. If we don’t disclose nobody else will disclose. Openness means that somebody else who is struggling may feel like they can talk about their mental health problems too. Autism is not a mental health problem, but may come with mental health problems too,” says Dr. Becky Akroyd. Dr. Akroyd joins this episode to discuss being a medical doctor, why waiting rooms are overwhelming, and the work of Autistic Doctors International.

“These are all components we experience that vary from the neuromajority sexual experience. The more we can talk about the more we can start having dialogue around this and sharing with one another what we experience and don’t like frees us up from internalized Shane and empowers us to live our best thriving life what serves us or aligns with us especially sexually,” says Carol Jeane Whittington.

“In our quest for perpetual comfort, we grab at every resource to enhance our short life. This selfish exploitation is directly creating it.

“Particularly in the medical profession, sometimes the answer is to want to physically do something, to fix something, to want to make something better. It’s not meant in a negative way, but sometimes the answer is to stand back, give it a couple of minutes, and see what happens. If they calm down on their own, they don’t need medication,” says David Crisp. Davis joins this episode to discuss autism-specific training for frontline staff in the health and social care sectors. He also talks about over 109 trainings that he has completed in learning to support other autistic people. To learn more about David and Wired 4 Autism visit https://wired4autism.co.uk.

"Astrology I now know is undoubtedly my special interest. It was bringing me back to life while I was learning about it, and learning about it was unpacking all my trauma and helping me see parts of myself that I'd never been able to either acknowledge at all before or was seeing in a much more healthy light,” says Colleen Harrison.

“I've lived a really long time not knowing that I'm autistic. Since people weren't being diagnosed with autism when I was a child, that must mean there's actually loads of people like me out there who are autistic and either haven't realized or are just finding out. Maybe it would be useful if I talk about it on the internet?” says Purple Ella.

"In many anime and manga, there are characters with disabilities, but for the majority, either they're used as a reason for the main character to protect the evils of the world from. Usually, as the stories progress, they fade into the background. That wasn't the case with Code Gease,” says Olivia McAdams. Olivia joins this episode of Autism Stories to discuss disability and autonomy in anime characters, learning Japanese, and her recent admittance into a masters program for disability and human development.

"We noticed at that point there were, anecdotally, trends in the community, which both I'd experienced and other people have experienced around not being able to access mental health services, and also, having very negative experiences if they had access to mental health services. We wanted to see, basically, how much that was anecdotal or how much that was a trend,” says Sonny Hallett. Sonny joins this episode of Autism Stories to discuss being part of a committee that developed a report regarding the problems with mental health support for autistic people, their work as a counselor, and how to identify training that is helpful to autistic people.

“The most and biggest hurdle is communication, because of my sensory, mind, and body issues which distract my actions. RPM helps me to communicate and provide a means to learn academics.

Rohit joins this episode of Autism Stories to discuss communicating through RPM, his desire to be a journalist, and his 15 years of blogging.

“One of the sexist marketing words in the world people view is neurodiversity, but it's so much more than that. It's more than a marketing word, it's more than just a nice concept to put in your advertising in a bid to get more people in. Because you can see very quickly the people that have taken this approach: oh, let's just scribble out autism and just put neurodiversity there,” says Jude Morrow.

“My podcast arose because I wanted to share more stories about real, authentic people working to conserve the ocean, and to share its wonder with a diverse audience.
