Intriguing, provocative and philosophical-like no one I’ve ever met-Eden Alon (AKA Ched) shares his journey with life as a High Functioning Autistic individual. His segment’s title, Me & Autism, is about exploring individuals who have autism and their life story with it. The inspiration for this segment comes from the fact that Autism Spectrum Disorder comes in many shapes and forms in different people. That those same people will have unique accounts about living with autism they can share with the globe. This segment will invite individuals who have autism to come into the show and talk about their experiences with autism and any stereotypes they had to endure. It will give the guest of the segment the “microphone” and to hopefully empower people with autism to make their stories recorded for the world to hear. Eden plans on illuminating us with his experience, perspective and commentary. Click here to connect with him on LinkedIn.
Contributor and sponsor, Nicole Young-Cline is the owner and director of Young Talkers, a speech therapy clinic established in Myrtle Beach in 2007. The speech-language pathologists at Young Talkers work with many children on the autism spectrum. Nicole is a tremendous asset to the autism community, supporting organizations for children with special needs. She is also involved with special needs ministries in local churches to provide these families an opportunity to attend church. Nicole will be talking about different therapies provided by Young Talkers and how they could be beneficial for children in the community including the families in the Champion Autism Network. Nicole is married and stays very busy with her two wonderful children. Click here to connect with her on LinkedIn.
It was great and informative! I believe the more people know about autism, the easier it will be for the community as a whole to accommodate this segment of our community. Thank you for an educational workshop.
