In this episode, I feature Autism Self-Advocate/Celebrity Carly Fleischmann who has been in the news recently for being told on a flight back to her hometown to not use her iPad during takeoff. Carly is nonverbal and relies on her iPad to communicate which has led to a debate amongst the autism community when it comes to accommodations. I discuss this and why accommodations and acceptance are essential in the video here.
