In this episode, we talk about why autism can be so hard to recognize, to grasp, to identify, and to accept. We name “four S’s” to consider why it is so discombobulating: Spectrum, Systems, Stigma, and Self. We know each journey is complex and unique, but we you find some recognition or gain some insights as you listen. As always, let us know what’s missing!
