I’m on Healthy Place TV!! A Guest Interview about Autism

I have had the amazing opportunity to be interviewed on  Healthy Place: America’s Mental Health Channel.

The interview is in two parts… and… yes, of course it is on the topic of autism.

I hope you enjoy it:

Thank you to Gary (the wonderful host and interviewer) and to Patricia (the producer) both of whom were very welcoming, quelled my nervousness, and helped me with overcoming a few technical issues. Thank you also to John, my spectacular and supportive colleague, who is always willing to help me out with tech challenges, a nudge here and there, and endless encouragement!

  1. Fantastic! You did a great job! It was great to get to ‘see’ you finally :)

  2. Wow – that was amazing!!! I’m so proud of you (like you’re my sister) and, like outrunning the storm says, it was wonderful to “see” you, Leah.

    Wonderful interview! Thank you for sharing the idea that just because people with autism may not experience the world as I do does not mean they are unable to experience it in a meaningful way. I’m not affected by autism in my life, just aware of it from television and movies, but you made me curious. I want to understand how your son and others like him experience life and our world. I hope that his future is full of people who do understand him so he’s able to grow in all ways. My best to you.

    Thank you for your wonderful comment Kellie. That is really the point isn’t it: to be able to appreciate that others might experience and process the world differently and to be open to understanding that there is not one right way to experience and respond to the world, but, rather, multiple ways. If this made you curious and you are seeking to further understand then you are an important and critical part of what will build a more positive future for my child and others like him.
    Thank you for that!!
