Valerie Gilpeer Co-Author ‘I’ve Been Buried Under Years Of Dust: A Memoir of Autism and Hope’

“I have been buried under years of dust and now I have so much to say.”  

Born with nonverbal autism, these were the first words twenty-five-year-old Emily Grodin ever wrote.  In this episode we explore communication techniques to help bridge the gap between verbal and non-verbal speakers, how to listen to non verbal clues and examine our bigotry towards people with disabilities.
