Understanding Autism Characteristics and Breaking Down Stigmas

On this episode in honor of Autism Acceptance month, I welcome Andi Putt (@mrsspeechiep on Instagram) . She is a pediatric speech language pathologist who conducts Autism evaluations and is a neurodiversity advocate.

I welcome her to discuss the following:

  • What is identity-first versus person-first language?
  • Outdated terminology when discussing our autistic community
  • Biggest misconceptions regarding autism
  • Common characteristics with a breakdown of questions that your Pediatrician may ask or screen for during well-visits
