Oxygen Mask Episode 21: Sy & Maychee discuss autism in the Hmong-American community


Beth is joined by two guests from the local Hmong-American community. Sy, reflects on his educational path and the supports he has or would like to have in order to live well as an adult with autism. Maychee, a mother of a young child with autism, describes pursuing supports for her son. She navigated her family’s reservations that were rooted in stigma and lack of understanding.


This Oxygen Mask Episode was made possible by an Family Connections Innovation Grant from the MN Department of Human Services. Communities Engaging Autism is grateful for this financial support.
