How to cope with change
Listen now
Changes in life are hard for everyone, but for autistic people they come with that extra layer of complexity. Whether that’s your first time getting the bus alone,or going from school to college. We speak to Harvey, from the charity Ambitious about Autism, a national charity for autistic children and young people. He’s from their Ambitious Youth Network, which they describe as a “safe online space for autistic young people aged 16-25 to help them understand their autistic identity.” We also hear from you, our listeners, on how to handle change and learning to laugh when it goes a bit wrong! Thank you to Anna, Caroline, Mike and all our other listeners we didn’t manage to include. You can always email us at [email protected]. Presented by Robyn Steward and Jamie Knight. Produced by Drew Hyndman and Edited by Clare Fordham. Listen via your smart speaker by saying "Ask the BBC for 1800 Seconds on Autism" and subscribe on BBC Sounds.
