Intro to Autism Advocacy - Episode Resources

During this final episode of the year I talked about my personal experiences with advocating for individuals with autism and other disabilities.
I introduced my four steps to beginning Autism Advocacy for your self or your loved one:

  • Everybody Needs an Advocate, Sometimes
  • The LAW rules!
  • Data speaks, Emotions Reek
  • Everything is Negotiable
