Autism Interview #112 Part 2: Maxine Share on Assuming Competence of Those with High Support Needs

Maxine Share is a Canadian writer, advocate, workshop creator, and presenter working hard to try to change understanding so that we can change the actions of those working and living with people on the spectrum. Last week, she shared her diagnosis story, discussed her work as an autism consultant, and offered recommendations for supporting autistic children in the classroom. In Part Two of her interview, Maxine discusses how many overlook the strengths of those with high support needs, and some fundamental “musts” for raising children with a positive autistic identity.
