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.

Autism Talk TV is finally back from our extended holiday hiatus. This week we’re interviewing Bud Fraze, president of Playability Toys. We met Bud at the ASA conference in Dallas and instantly hit it off.
Bud shows us various toys he’s created for children with special needs. You’ll get to learn about a Buddy Dog, a Rib-it-Ball, and a Brain Gear. Playability Toys are designed to stimulate an autistic child’s sensory needs.
We originally wanted to include Bud’s interview in our famous toy episode, but decided he deserved his own show. Aspergian girl and production assistant Kirsten Lindsmith is guest hosting this episode with me. You may remember her from the original toy episode.
