Layla Luna talks with host Brian Cleary about Just Bee, which is a nonprofit dedicated to the millions of families with children or young adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and neurodiversity. Just Bee’s mission is to train businesses to become more sensory-friendly and welcoming for this untapped market.
She says that autism can look to others like bad parenting or unbehaved children because autism has no outward look. For those with Autism, they may look like everyone else on the outside but inside they may be feeling overwhelmed or anxiety-ridden because of some external sensation, like a radio playing in the background, that seems fine to others, but for some with autism, the sound might be very loud and cause a sensory overload or anxiety.
Listen as Layla tells Brian about the different aspects of autism and neurodiversity which may appear in a wide range of ways, how it may affect people with these conditions, different ways it might appear, and how you can help.
