'Self-care on the spectrum' with Michael Theo
Launching our newest series is none other than the wonderful Michael Theo! Star of Love on the Spectrum and creator of the Mr A+ podcast, Michael has captured the hearts and minds of Australia with his dapper style, hilarious one-liners and warm personality. Michael strongly believes that it's our differences that make us special and uses his podcast and platform to create safe spaces to express and celebrate these differences.
We can't wait to share our wonderful discussion on the importance of self-care and how autistic people can implement self-care strategies in their daily lives.
Q & A with Hayden McDonald
With a passion for flying planes and autism advocacy, Hayden McDonald is using his lived experience of autism to support other autistic people and their loved ones in regional Australia. We spoke to him earlier in the month about his love of flying planes, the creation of his YouTube channel and how he'll be advocating for autism on his upcoming solo circumnavigation of Australia.
