A Fresh and Uniquely Human Perspective on Autism

  EPISODE 1 A Fresh and Uniquely Human Perspective on Autism       Play the Episode…       …and Continue the Discussion     Do you have a book or podcast club? If so, you may use this discussion guide to facilitate a conversation about this episode.     1. Barry coined the term “Uniquely Human” to de-pathologize and reframe the way we understand autistic individuals and the autistic experience. In your opinion, does “Uniquely Human” help to achieve these goals of seeing autism in a different way? If so, why, and if not, why not? 2. Barry and Dave see the Uniquely Human Podcast as a neurotypical/autistic co-equal partnership, as they each bring unique experiences and skills to the podcast. How is this approach emblematic of what we are learning from the neurodiversity movement? What are the potential benefits of such a partnership for listeners? 3. Barry and Dave discuss the concept that autism is best understood as a “shared human experience”. How does this perspective contrast with more traditional views of autism, and how can this change your attitude and actions?       Featuring           Show Notes   Join Barry and Dave for the debut of Uniquely Human: The Podcast, as they deeply explore the broader meaning of the phrase, “uniquely human.” In this hour-long special episode, you’ll hear Barry describe how a lifetime of work has informed the necessary evolution of humankind’s relationship with autism and neurodiversity. Enjoy this special conversation as we set the stage for regular episodic content focusing on the most important topics in autism.         ACKNOWLEDGMENTS     Music Matt Savage, courtesy of Savage Records Matt Savage is an autistic jazz musician, composer, and bandleader.
