How Do I Tell A Child They Have Autism?

Argh one of the number one questions that parents have and a very complex one!
This week for my podcast episode I interviewed Dean Beadle. Dean has toured the UK and internationally for fifteen years as an autistic speaker and trainer. He is also a proud promoter of the autistic voice, encouraging and empowering other autistic people to share their experiences and insights too.
In this episode Dean explains when he found out his diagnosis and his advice and guidance for parents who are wondering about when to disclose a diagnosis to their child.
In my interview with Dean we discuss
  • Autistic identity – follow Dean’s personal account of reclaiming his own identity
  • Why Dean doesn’t like the word “label” and why we should call it a diagnosis
  • The negative narrative which surrounds autism and how to positively reframe it
  • How to make children the solution to behaviour rather than blaming them
  • The impact of anxiety


In this MUST LISTEN episode Dean shares his own personal experiences and insights into autistic identity and how he has managed to reclaim his own identity. This is one of the most fascinating episodes to date and I absoultely loved recording it with Dean.
Listen to the episode NOW!
