https://psychiatry.ucsf.edu/news/surprising-source-untangling-autism-clawed-frog Hi Kirk and Graham, the video in this article adds to my understanding of the discussion on the podcast this week with Jill Escher and Alycia Halladay.
Hey Graham and Kirk! I love your podcast and listen to it weekly 🤩 I work for an organization called Ausome Ottawa: we do sports programs for kids with autism. 🏀 Right now, I'm releasing a new activity video every weekday at 10am to help everyone stay active at home! I thought your followers may be interested in checking them out!! 😄 ➡️You can find my 'STAY ACTIVE with #ausome' videos on our page: Ausome Ottawa 🏃‍♂️ #autism #autastic #sports #stayactive
Congratulations on episode #200! I’ve listened to every one of them, and throughout many difficulties raising our 17-year-old wonderful son your humor and informative episodes (especially with Jill Escher) have kept my sanity intact (well, as limited as it was in the first place, that is). Keep up the great work, and I’ll be looking forward to episode #300 and beyond down the road apiece.
Inflammation may be main driver of autism, scientists find
I just found out about tests at UC San Diego (my alma mater!) using Suramin to treat autism. Some parents have reported fantastic results. Might be something that roving reporter Jill Escher would be interested in checking out.
Hey, guys! Gabriel and I will be live streaming a talk about autism and going back to school tomorrow at 7pm, central!
This story from the Feb. 1 Oregonian in Portland is unpleasant to read; it's full of questionable behavior on everybody's part. I'm sharing it because it points to dangerous consequences of misconstruing social cues. The accused had never had a s*xual experience with a woman before. He thought this particular woman wanted him to crawl into her bed and begin having s*x with her even though she was sound asleep (and probably still drunk). Instead of going to trial, he pleaded "no contest" to felony coercion and second-degree s*xual abuse. His penalties are appropriate and therapeutic, except for 60 days in jail. I think jail will hurt him more than help him. Maybe the victim's lawyer insisted on jail time.
