Autism Talk TV – Episode 16 – Women, Fatherhood, and Executive Functioning

This post is by Alex Plank of ‘Wrong Planet.’

Alex, Kirsten, and Jack are back together in Orlando, Florida for the Autism Society Conference. We had a blast at the conference and filmed a TON of AMAZING videos!

Kirsten talks with Dena Gassner about the special challenges that come with being a woman on the spectrum. Alex and Dr. Robert Naseef gave a talk about fatherhood at the ASA conference. They talk about the uniqueness of the relationship between a father and an individual on the autism spectrum. Jack and Alex talk with Claire Dumke about executive functioning. This involves learning to drive, keeping track of things, and other great info.

This is the first of 4 episodes that take place at the conference. This is also the first of our new multipart episodes.

    Thanks for some of the valuable insights into women on the spectrum, executive functioning challenges (I never realized driving would be such a challenge for Aspies due to filtering challenges), and how to be a Dad to children on the autism spectrum.
