Having an Autistic child or one on the spectrum can be the toughest on the mothers. That's why in today's episode Michelle s interviewed the Founder of Differentbrains.org Hackie Reitman. Hackie started to research more about different brains when his daughter was diagnosis with Autism later in life. Being a retired orthopedic surgeon, heavyweight boxer, film maker, author and philanthropist, Hackie decided to research the various differences in our brains. When he realized that most fields dealing with different types of brains from Autism, ADHA, Down Syndrome, do not share their research, Hackie has been on a mission to change that. You will also learn about the wonderful work they're doing at Differentbrains.org hiring interns to learn various skills and help them get jobs to have a more independent life.
