Season: 1 / Episode: 9

In this episode, you’ll hear the story of Asma Ahmed. She’s a clinical psychologist based in Karachi, Pakistan who’s an active member of the Autism Spectrum Disorder Welfare Trust.

Asma works intensely with children and people with autism and their families. She’s extremely passionate about creating inclusive environments at school, in the workplace, and in society. Against this backdrop, we dive into the topic of neurodiversity, including understanding what neurodiversity means, and ways to create more support structures, reduce stigma, and accommodate people to improve lives. This includes challenging our own assumptions about what’s normal, what’s necessary, and what’s desirable for a person to live well.
