Autism Stories: Neisha Hirsch “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.

Autism Stories: Iris Warchall “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.

Autism Stories: Heini Natri “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.

Autism Stories: Amanda Hebert Hughes “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.

Autism Stories: Dr. Wenn Lawson and Fergus Murray “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.

Autism Stories: Denielle Rose “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.

Autism Stories: Dr. Beckie Akroyd “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.

Autism Stories: Carole Jean Whittington “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. Carole Jean joins this episode to talk about autistics and sex, her podcast for late identified autistics, and how to flip the script on a high conflict conversation online.
