Discover what’s possible when an autistic self-advocate courageously shares her stories online.

Eileen Lamb is an autistic self-advocate whose son is also on the spectrum. Eileen hosts a blog called The Autism Cafe, where she posts articles and resources for parents. She published her first book last August, called All Across the Spectrum. You can also find her photographs on Instagram @theautismcafe. 

In this episode, Eileen and I discuss her son’s diagnosis and his progress from receiving Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services. It was especially interesting to hear about her experience receiving a diagnosis as an adult. I really appreciate her candor as she takes us on her journey, from growing up feeling different to the mixed emotions when she learned of her own autism.  

Eileen is originally from France; therefore, we touch on the surprising differences in attitudes towards autism between France and the US. 

For the first time in a public space other than on her blog, Eileen shares a traumatic incident that involved Child Protective Services and left her feeling betrayed by her son’s ABA team. 

We also delve into the controversy of ABA therapy and the myths surrounding it. Eileen opens up about how hard it’s been to receive online attacks from other self-advocates and how she handles those criticisms today.
