33. Why Mindset Matters | Season 4 Opener
I’ve been working on my mindset lately and I’ve learned that ONLY focusing on the bad that could happen tends to also close me off to accepting the good that may come my way, which is the good that I deserve. It’s the good things I’ve been working toward. What’s the point of working so hard for our growth if we’re closed off to the good things? Tune in to hear more about mindset, connection to self, and how being aware of our mindset also helps us connect better to who we are on episode 33.

29. Connection
On episode 29 we discuss connection and what that means. Why is this not studied more as it relates to the support of autistic adults? Why is support of adults an afterthought in many current studies? The connectivity theory of autism is discussed as well as the idea of doing a survey of our own.

28. Time "Management" 🙄
On episode 28 we discuss time management and time blindness related to executive dysfunction, but instead, I tell it to you like you're 5 because sometimes we just need to break it down and start over. If you're autistic or ADHD (or both like me) this episode will likely include some tips you haven't heard before!  Here is the article about the (brief) history of "time": https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2015/12/the-creation-of-modern-time/421419/ CONNECT WITH ME Instagram: @laurazdan Facebook: www.facebook.com/laurazdan.connect Twitter: @laurazdan Youtube: www.youtube.com/notneurotypical --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/notneurotypicalpodcast/support

26. "Refrigerator Mothers"
The 'Refrigerator Mother Theory' was a concept in the 1950s that proposed autism was caused by a lack of maternal warmth. This concept was debunked by the 1960s and 1970s but how far have we really come from this idea?
