with Dr. Damian Milton

06/03/2020

episode 2

Damian Milton is an autistic researcher whose idea spawned a huge shift in how we think about autism.  In this episode, listen in as we explore:

– How Damian  developed his hypothesis that the trouble with empathy and social  skills is a two-way street between autistic and non-autistic people, not a deficit of autistic people

– What early research Damian did to confirm this hypothesis

– One thing Damian would love to see OTs stop doing with social stories and comic strip interventions with autistic clients

– A tip for how to better approach sensory processing challenges with autistic kids, with a cautionary tale from his own life
