with Rachel Dorsey

episode 27

Rachel Dorsey is Autistic and an ASHA-Certified Speech-Language Pathologist. Join us in episode 26 as we totally overhaul everything you thought you knew about the social skills of autistic people. 

In this episode, we dive into:

  • Rachel’s own experience as an autistic person with neurodiverse and neurodivergent friendships
  • The subtle and insidious ways that OTs and SLPs are teaching our autistic kids to hide their own thoughts and emotions, even when we think we aren’t
  • The surprisingly negative ways that traditional social and social/emotional interventions can play out throughout a child’s life
  • How we can use a neurodiversity-affirming approach instead to support our clients’ strengths and their sense of positive self-identity and belonging
