Monday 20th March – Autism Awareness, the Hidden Disability
We discuss a hidden disability that very often goes unseen in an individual. Anxiety, highly-focused interests, difficulties with social interaction – these may be feelings we all recognise, but they are symptoms that those with autism experience in extreme cases on a day to day basis.
So we raise awareness for Autism Awareness Month, which takes place in April.
Chrissy speaks to resident Psychologist Dr Audrey Tang, who breaks down Autism and the common difficulties and solutions. She is also joined by Anna Kennedy of Anna Kennedy Online who has first-hand experience of what living with a family member with autism can be like. And there is a performance of ‘Letting Go’ by Kieron Lee, from the Anna Kennedy Online album ‘Building Bridges’.
Nutritionist Lily Soutter demostrates how to make a delicious, and healthy, Fudge Nut Smoothie which is also great for people with autism and she explains why.
And Chrissy shares some tips courtesy of the The National Autistic Society on how you can help somebody who you believe may have autism. However, these tips can help anyone who needs to approach someone else with something difficult to discuss.
