In this episode, hosts Katherine Cody, Psy.D. and Becca Lory, CAS, BCCS welcome guest Anlor Davin, author of the book “Being Seen.” Anlor grew up in France while it was in the grip of oppressive and now discredited theories about autism. She was ultimately diagnosed on the spectrum at the age of 46 after moving to the United States. Anlor, Becca, and Kate discuss how autism acceptance has progressed in France, the challenges of advocating on an international scale, and the role Zen practices have played in Anlor’s life.
