85: Kirsten Lindsmith - Autism & Neurodiversty ✨ In today's podcast I am joined by Kirsten Lindsmith to talk about Autism and Neurodiversity. Kirsten Lindsmith is an author, artist, consultant, and autism advocate from New York City. After receiving an ASD diagnosis at the age of 19, she began co-hosting the online television show Autism Talk TV and speaking at conferences and events about her experience as a young woman on the spectrum. Kirsten has written columns for Wrong Planet and Autism After 16, and was profiled in The New York Times. Kirsten graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a degree in Vertebrate Ontogeny and Phylogeny. She currently works as a therapist in partnership with Melody of Autism, and as a consultant for behavioral and sensory needs. In the conversation Kirsten speaks about what Autism is and what it is not. The misconception and stereotypes of Autism. The division between Aspergers and Autism, and the divisions between ‘Low functioning' and ‘high functioning' and its implications. Kirsten also addresses why Autistic women are misdiagnosed with Bipolar, Borderline Personality Disorder, and Schizophrenia, Autism and Empathy and mistaking the autistic individual as sociopathic, masking, cognitive looping and how it refers to Autistics special interests, how autistic traits affect social and romantic relationships, sensory processing disorder, and more. Kirsten also address the overlap of ADHD, OCD, Bipolar and Autism.

1 in 10,000. 1 in 44. Those are the rates of Autism in the 1970's vs the rates of Autism in 2021 (just released by the CDC)! That is close to a 100% increase in 50 years! Dr Rubin passionately discusses the concept of Neurodiversity...accepting kids (and adults) where they are in their social communication abilities. People with Autism are not disabled...they are differently-abled. Some people with Autism are not non-verbal...they are minimally speaking. Accept people where they are not where 'society' says they should be!

The Tourette community lost a hero Dec. 15, someone I named on the very first episode (Season 1, Episode 0) of Tourette's Podcast. Steve Bachner was my first frame of reference for TS. Seeing him on an episode of 20/20 in the late 1980s was my first time seeing someone else with the disorder, and there he was, Steve, being followed by John Stossel and cameras, in a shopping mall, Steve ticcing to the fullest. I remember being a little kid guffawing at people's reactions to Steve, with a least one citizen observer telling the show he assumed he was probably high on drugs. The observer wouldn't have guessed Steve was living with a disorder that throws involuntary sounds and movements. I knew all about it. I met Steve not long after at a national Tourette Association of America (then called the Tourette Syndrome Association) conference and confirmed his heroism to me. Steve was kind, funny, witty, and willing to be talk to me like a human being. I never forgot it. We reconnected after I started Tourette's Podcast in 2018 and always talked about doing an interview. Sadly, Steve's health was declining; scheduling would be hit or miss, with very wide latitude granted to all the rest and recuperation time he needed. But we eventually, in May 2020, found the chance to record. It wasn't our dream interview; it would have been but the phone line was noisy and made listening a challenge. But, after some audio cleanup, and now in Steve's memory, it's here and it covers a lot of amazing ground. This is old-school Tourette Syndrome, with critical cracks at sensational coverage from Stossel, Geraldo, Springer and others who orbited Steve's disorder. They got to know his Tourette (or maybe a thin dimension of it) but did they ever get to know him as a person? (His friend Robin Williams did; Steve describes him here as a "soulmate.") I'm so lucky to have counted him a hero and saddened at his absence now. So this one is dedicated to the loving memory of Steve Bachner.

Ilana Grostern is a Montreal-based Self-Attunement and Somatic Coach. Her early career took her from graphic design to the launch of a sustainable business venture – a cloth diaper company that she ran for fifteen years. Her sensorial over-excitability attuned her to the needs of the body, leading her to pursue a certification as Canada's first Whole30 coach. TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:People who don't know about their own giftedness lack information about themselves.Lack of self-understanding leads to frustration and being misunderstood. Therefore, it's important to know who we are in order to have a better relationship with ourselves but also with others. The giftedness theme is completely missing from the mainstream. The giftedness angle gives a lot of clarity in the coaching realm.Somatic coaching is about healing the somatic-mind (Cartesian) split. No more “I think, therefore I am!”A lot of chronic illnesses in the gifted population due to the resonance between the body and mind.Ilana shows you to value neutral experiences of the body (soma) and map out what's in the physical realm.The mind is a “meaning making machine”! The mind will jump to mental conclusion about the body from learned paste experiences without actually tuning in. We need to break this jumping to conclusion cycle.You are encouraged to flip the right with the left side! Ilana gives you the space to try new things without making you feel stupid.Coaching is about accepting where you are in this moment and learning a new way of doing something.The parents need to feel and relate to what their children go through. We start with our own healing first before we can support anyone else.People who are in chronic survival mode, are dis-regulated and might feel overwhelmed by this approach. Learning to increase the tolerance in the uncomfortable somatic moments will allow you to learn what the body is trying to tell you.MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:ilanagrostern.comIlana Grostern on instagram | facebook and LinkedInPDF “Gifted people and their problems” by Francis HeylighenOverexcitabilities (OEs)Mind-body dualismJoin the Unleash Monday CommunityUnleashMonday.comSupport the show (https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/UnleashMonday)

I had the pleasure of interviewing Janna Champagne, RN, BSN recently to discuss cannabis and spirituality. Janna has been a fantastic TSC Talks Podcast guest several times in the past. I am linking to those podcasts for anyone interested in hearing more from Janna, including her initial “story”, and more detailed information on using cannabis to heal and her work with Autism, leading to developing Autism Safe Haven. Our most recent interview delved into Janna's story and teased out how her lived experience led her to step more fully into her soul's purpose. Janna delivers heartfelt, vulnerable glimpses from her journey thus far in this lifetime. Her lived experience is testimony to the power of continuing to show up, work on herself, and allow herself to surrender and be led by spirit despite some overwhelming odds. A story of personal transformation, hope, and healing. Previous podcasts with Janna:https://tsctalks.com/tsc-talks-guest-jenna-champagne/ Janna's story 12/2019https://tsctalks.com/tsc-talks-guest-janna-champagne/-on Autism Safe Haven, Autism/Cannabis 12/2020Links:http://www.integratedholisticcare.com/providers.html https://jannachampagne.com/ https://www.facebook.com/cannanursejanna/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/jannachampagne/ https://www.instagram.com/nursejanna/ From bio: Nurse Janna's introduction to the cannabis industry began as a cannabis patient who happens to be a nurse when she suffered a debilitating immune health collapse in 2012. Janna credits cannabis for helping to reduce her reliance on harmful pharmaceuticals and support her ability to regain her health, including reversal of autoimmune disease, against all odds. Janna is also known for her success in treating her daughter's Autism with cannabis, which was featured as a cover story in a national cannabis industry magazine in 2017. www.integratedholisticcare.com/newsNurse Janna's focus is holistic treatment--natural alternatives to pharmaceuticals including CBD and cannabis therapy. Her work as a cannabis-specialty nurse since 2015 included educating thousands of patients, helping them optimize their cannabis therapy outcomes through an individualized and well-informed approach. Janna has since applied her extensive clinical knowledge to educate medical professionals about cannabis, and help producers create therapeutic quality and targeted cannabis products, with a goal of improving cannabis patient success rates. Janna is also founder of Autism Safe Haven, a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to improving cannabis-inclusive Autism care resources.Nurse Janna's specialties include: Autism, Inflammatory/Chronic Pain Syndromes, Autoimmune, Neurological, Gastrointestinal, and Mental Health conditions. Janna found that success with cannabis often led to reduced reliance on pharmaceuticals, meanwhile improving quality of life and function. Nurse Janna is a founding member of Cannabis Nurses Network, serving on CNN's Speaker's Bureau, and as leadership. Janna was awarded Leader of Nursing and Outstanding Author for Cannabis Nurses Media in 2019 and nominated/awarded Cannabis Nurses Network 2020 Educator of the Year. Janna offers accredited cannabis nurse education programs, and also serves as a cannabis college professor, teaching graduate student medical practitioners through John Patrick University's Masters of Integrative Medicine Degree Program. Helping producers create optimal cannabis products resulted in one of the CBD product lines winning Top 10 CBD of 2020 designation using Janna's formula recipes (Verdania Fields).

How do we hold students accountable for their actions, but acknowledge their unique neurological profiles at the same time?How do we help neurodivergents (e.g., ADHD, Autism) build genuine connections with others and succeed in academic, vocational, and social situations? In this episode, I invited special guest Miriam Campbell, founder of Skills for Connection, to help answer these questions. Miriam is a speech-language pathologist and a social worker who works with students directly through her private practice. She also provides professional development for therapists and educators who support students with diagnoses that impact communication and academic skills. In this interview, Miriam and I discuss:✅Why don't "social skills" we teach in therapeutic settings transfer to real-life situations? ✅How emotional regulation impacts our ability to connect with others, and how to help kids understand and navigate their own emotions. ✅How to help kids take responsibility for their behaviors in a way that builds a positive self-image.✅How to help kids advocate for their sensory, emotional, and communication needs and still develop the skills for connecting with others. In this episode, I mention the Time Tracking Journal, a tool to help parents and educators support kids in engaging in positive self-talk and self-reflection during day-to-day tasks. It's intended to help kids be more independent with tasks that require sequencing and planning; but it can also help kids reflect on social situations as well.

While neurodiversity might be an unfamiliar word for many, its meaning is simple. We all have different brains. For the legal field, there is value in this, as we need to be able to look at problems in different ways and find new approaches to solving those problems. Haley Moss is an author, attorney, and advocate for neurodiversity, and is neurodivergent herself. Haley has autism, which she sees as both a disability and makes her different. But it also makes her interesting, and while she doesn't know what it means to be neurotypical, she is fine with that and sees her difference not as a curse, but as a benefit. It is the difference in the way that she processes information, solves problems, and it is the neurodiversity that drives her and others to be innovative. She wrote her first book at age 15 and has a desire to use her experiences to help the next generation. Haley Moss explains that we can't just look at neurodiversity disabilities in a vacuum. After all, this is the only minority group you can join at any point in your life. The more we understand the issues surrounding neurodiversity, and accommodate for those issues, the better we will be as an industry and a society.

In episode 36, I talk about 3 common "problem" food categories when it comes to kids diets; plus tips for making sustainable changes across eat of these areas. Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to offer rewards for eating healthy foods. Acquiring a taste for different textures and flavors is a skill that develops over time.That's why it's so important to pay attention to kids' sensory preferences when you're introducing new foods. Sometimes minor differences in flavor or texture may not register to an adult with a broad palate; but they can make a big impact for someone with sensory sensitivities. That's why in this episode, I share:✅Why kids may show some inconsistencies in their tolerance to certain foods.✅How to gradually reduce additives like refined sugar from your kids' diets.✅How to expand the amount of fruits and vegetables your kids will eat. In this episode, I mention my 6-week plan that helps families develop healthy eating habits that build brain development. I'll even show you how to encourage kids to eat vegetables!

Unaware of clinically having Dyslexia, former professional hockey player Brent Sopel discovered his disability at age 32. In this inspiring episode, Brent shares what the real struggles looked like, contrary to what many people understand them and why it's essential to talk about this handicap to help young people who are undiagnosed and misunderstood.   Join me in this episode of Someone Gets Me —Neurodiversity in Everyday Life with Brent Sopel ▶️ Key points covered in this episode:    ✔️ Many adults that are gifted and neurodiverse don't find out about their own situation until their children get diagnosed.  Such is the case with Brent Sopel. He profoundly understands the struggles of people living with dyslexia who have to deal with reduced career opportunities, social isolation, and lower satisfaction in all areas of life.    ✔️ Hockey saved Brent in many ways. It didn't only serve as a job but also as a self-esteem booster. As a visual and physical sport, hockey fits into Brent's natural abilities without all the reading and writing struggle experienced in school all day long.    ✔️ Have an extra empathy chip.  Many people with dyslexia continue to suffer from a lack of understanding and support. People need to understand the disability and be more aware as suicides have tripled in the last ten years, with an intense 90% of suicide notes left by a person with dyslexia.    ✔️ Early diagnosis of Dyslexia and the early understanding of what turns it into a gift. Dyslexia is positively correlated with intelligence; even though there's a misnomer, people might feel bad about themselves.    ✔️ By starting the Brent Sopel Foundation, his mission is to provide financial and educational support and early detection and intervention that people with dyslexia deserve.   ✔️ Don't ever ask, "Why me?" Whatever that pain is, it's gotten you here today. Brent has this to say to everyone going through dyslexia. "You're not alone. No matter what you are going through, your battles -- know that we all go through things. But we can go through it together." ___________________________________________________________________________________   How to Connect with Dianne A.
