Autism rights/ Aspies for Freedom
Pushing Limits delves into the Autism rights movement. Pushing Limits producer Doyle Saylor, Hosts Eddie Y’tuarte and John Healy interview Earth Monkey (Melody Kohut), a vocal member of the Aspies for Freedom or AFF, a grassroots autism rights movement. www.aspiesforfreedom.com

Autism has been in the forefront of local news lately stemming from charges of discrimination when employees with Autism and other developmental disabilities were fired from a Berkeley McDonalds allegedly for no cause. John Healy and Eddie Y’tuarte talk about what AFF means by neuro – diversity. They also explore other new disability rights concepts in the context of social prejudice against people with Autism.
