Discussions About Echolalia, Friendships, Communication, and Aggression for Those with an Autism Label Featuring Dr. Jessica Lester
The words we use matter and so does our silence. Autism specialists and prolific "silence" researcher, Dr. Jessica Lester, Ph.D. from Indiana University joins autism expert Barb Rentenbach and Lois Prislovsky, Ph.D. as they converse about the problematic idea that intelligence is predominately verbal. Historical "fix it" therapy and pathologizing language with regards to autism are also discussed.
