Continuing April Awareness Month, here is my interview with proud mother and Autism Advocate Danna Schaubel conducted at a fine establishment, the Fox & Feather Pub and Grill in downtown Ottawa, Ontario Canada.
Danna is the mother of a beautiful 7 year old, Melanie, who is on the autism spectrum. I talked to Danna about coming to Ottawa for the yearly Autism On the Hill that takes place every April on Parliament Hill and what her goals were this year. We discuss her thoughts on current government funding for autism programs (or lack thereof), and what others can do to help raise awareness and make changes, whether they are or have children on the spectrum or not. I was very proud to have her on the show and hear her story. I hope you enjoy it like I did and get a little insight into her world and her daily life. Below are some links she mentions in the show. Thanks for listening!
