One thought on “All About Autism Podcast 021: Autism and Employment

  1. Dave and Heather, I’m a friend of Jason’s. My son, Dallas, was diagnosed with autism on his second birthday, he’s two and a half now. We currently have him in around an hour of therapy per week. We’re attempting to get him in more, but there seems to be little help in Bloomington, IN. He’s non-verbal but has started picking up words here and there. He rarely retains them however. He’s also a toe-walker and wears braces. His tantrums are becoming worse and he’s starting to grab his 5-year old sister, Kayleigh, and pull her down (she weighs only 8 pounds more). I don’t really have any questions as I’m sure you’ve answered tons and I haven’t listened to every podcast but I wanted to let you know I’m really glad you two do this wonderful podcast and I hope you’ll keep it up. Great job.
