In this episode we talk with Dr Barry Prizant about a unique way of seeing autism. He is the author of Uniquely Human, a fantastic bestselling book about autism: Uniquely Human. In it he discusses the behaviours we associate with autism and challenges us to see autism in a more balanced way. Some behaviours may be annoying or even harmful, but many are coping mechanisms which serve a useful purpose.

Dr Prizant’s website provides more details about his work and resources
