Respecting Autistic Voices

with Sarah Selvaggi Hernandez (The Autistic OT)

05/19/2020

episode 1

Welcome to episode 1! In this episode Sarah and I dive deep into how our OT practices can better reflect our respect for autistic voices and our autistic clients. Join us while we:

– Revisit how the podcast idea was born and named

– Explore the most pressing reasons not to use hand-over-hand assistance with autistic kids (I’ll also talk about why we say “autistic” not “kids with autism”)

– Discuss autonomy, sex, race, the foster system, and so much more

– Explore the most pressing changes needed by OTs working with autistic people, and what concrete steps we can take to get there
