Unhinged Episode #056: Spectrum With Attitude

This week we welcome special guest Avery, a friend of the show’s, and to us. Avery and Doug share a connection through both being somewhere on the spectrum. Technically, Avery is toward the Asperger’s side. We discuss when and how each of them were first diagnosed, and how they have managed to overcome some of their challenges.

We also chat about the “gifts” that many people on the spectrum have and how it can sometimes be more of a curse. We’ve talked about Doug’s hyperfocusing abilities, and Avery has an eidetic memory and can recall facts with extreme accuracy. We did put Avery to the test trying to recall what year certain songs came out, and he was impressive!

Ultimately, people on the spectrum learn differently, so early and accurate diagnosis can help put them on the right path. Awareness is key!

    Gentleman, I want to thank you both for allowing me to be on your most-treasured program, and for being kind enough to subject your cherished audience to my warped musings!! To the audience:I must apologize for my unconscionable overuse of the phrase 'YOU KNOW'. My mother raised me with better manners than that!! All kidding aside, I had a great time and hopefully we can do it all over again in a decade or two!!!
