In Season 2, episode 17 of The Autism Podcast, James Gordon and Chris Papadopoulos interview Alan Morrison, an autistic man with rich insight and experience of the challenges and problems of the schooling and educational system for neurodivergent people. Alan talks about his childhood, the difficulties of school before he found teachers that inspired him, like the sociologist Michael Haralambos, who were rare and invaluable voices in the promotion of individuality, difference and diversity. Alan also talks about the story of his younger autistic brother and his educational transformation, how current curriculum and approaches still stifle individuality, and ideas and philosophies that could better promote diversity in today's schooling environments. We also talk about the unconscious moral mind, internal autistic honesty and the challenges of being assertive when integrity is being questioned. 

Please note that Alan also sent us a powerful story about an autistic boy he worked with during his teacher training. You can find a recording of this story, which is just a few minutes long and well worth also listening to, here: The Maze Story
