An Interview with John Henderson on Autism

Autism has always been here, we just didn’t have a name for it.  We love to give everything a name, but has doing so caused a ripple in the fabric of society?  Today, I sit down to explore Autism with John Henderson and how our cities and schools can better adapt to the societal shift and the negative effects of labeling – especially when it comes to its unintended consequences.

John has a new book coming out entitled SWAY.  Look for it on Amazon or at other fine retailers.  John is also giving away a copy of his new book here.  Just leave a comment after you listen to the show and we will pick a lucky winner.
