In this episode Lou and Dr Sarah Bernard talk about life growing up for Sarah and her discovery of her own neurodivergence. They also discuss Sarah's blogs about Ableist School Reports and letters, Autistic play and Behaviourism. They delve into a discussion about the Aged Care and Disability Royal Commissions and Sarah's career as a Geriatrician and they finish with a focus on WA, where Sarah lives and the sort of advocacy that parents will endeavour over the next little while. A really uplifting and educational discussion with a beautiful and lovely person.
