I have a weird voice
The couple of times I’ve done radio interviews, the main thing I’ve gotten out of it is what a weird voice I have. High and squeaky. I go into a sort of adrenalin-rush hazy state when I’m talking, so I always wonder if I said anything coherent or just sounded like a crazy woman.
Last night, I did an interview for Autism Talk Radio and I’m hopeful I didn’t COMPLETELY sound insane. I know we covered a lot of topics so, with any luck, I actually remembered and passed on some of the amazing advice Dr. Koegel gives in our book Growing Up on the Spectrum.
Autism Talk Radio interviews are available through iTunes and via their website. Here’s what the host has to say about it:
