Speakers:

The Autistic Empire is an attempt to create a community dominated by autistic people where minority stress does not exist, where people can have a safe and supportive environment to engage in self-development and express their most authentic selves, and where we can develop solutions to the very real issues we have as a people which can then be exported to the wider world.

Audible Autism Episode 7 – Work Episode

In this special themed episode, Odai looks at the world of work from an autistic perspective. With stories from Sarah, Savva and Cee, Odai considers what life in a neurotypical workplace is like for an autistic person. Sarah and Odai then interview Cee about their special interest in labour market policy, and life as a civil servant for a government department.

Apologies for the delayed return, it was all Sarah’s fault. She’s very sorry.
