Welcome to Autism Awareness Month. On today’s podcast, we speak with Dr. Stephen Shore, an adult with autism.
Diagnosed with “Atypical Development and strong autistic tendencies” and recommended for institutionalization, Dr. Shore is now an Adelphi University professor of Special Education and internationally renowned for education, publications, and consulting. A board member of Autism Speaks, president emeritus of the Asperger/Autism Network, and former board member of the Autism Society, Dr. Shore serves on the boards of numerous related organizations.
Our discussion today revolves around the 4 A’s of Autism: Awareness, Acceptance, Appreciation & Action, as well as how we can best support our learners and their families during the COVID pandemic.
