Episode 56: Special Guest, Dr James Cusack (Chief Executive at Autistica)
On today's episode I am very excited to chat to special guest Dr James Cusack. James is the Chief Executive at Autistica which is the UK’s leading national autism research charity. He joined the charity in September 2015 as Director of Science following a career in autism research at the University of Aberdeen, and he later became Chief Executive there in 2020 and is the first openly autistic CEO of a major charity. Autistica focus on enabling autistic people to live happy, healthy, long lives. They do this by by working with autistic people to understand their needs, funding research and shaping policy. In this episode, James talks about Autistica’s six visionary and ambitious 2030 Goals for the change they want to see in society and how they are trying to use research to understand what works and what doesn’t when it comes to changing the public’s attitudes towards autism and autistic people. James has sat on a number of advisory panels discussing the role of research in autism, and was vocal in the production of the report, 'A Future Made Together'. He was part of a core stakeholder group which successfully campaigned for Scotland’s first ever autism strategy. It was great to chat to James a bit more about Autistica as well as more about himself and his background.

Episode 55: Special Guests, Sensory Street project team!
Welcome back to another 21andsensory Podcast! On this episode I'll be chatting about an Oxford University project called Sensory Street. I am very lucky to be part of the project team and I thought it would be great to base an episode around the project and speak to some lovely people who are on the team! I chat to Becky from Sensory Spectacle, Dr Keren MacLennan and Catherine Woolley about their project roles. During 2021 we posted a series of questions on our social media pages and ran a series of focus groups with autistic people to learn more about their sensory experiences. We analysed the results of these and wrote up our findings. We will use this information to help us create our immersive event in 2022.

Episode 53: Special Guest...My Brother! A chat about FASD and being Autistic.
On today's episode I have a very special guest...my brother! We chat about his FASD and Autism diagnoses and a bit about his life and growing up. We also chat about his special interests and hobbies. This episode was recorded in mid 2021. If you haven't heard of FASD it stands for Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders. It is a term used to describe the permanent impacts on the brain and body of individuals prenatally exposed to alcohol during pregnancy resulting in a spectrum of physical, emotional, behavioural and neurological characteristics. I spoke on the podcast about my experiences growing up with my brother and how he made my parents realise my sensory processing difficulties.  I mention in this podcast that I was a guest on another podcast called Spotlight on FASD (@spotlightonfasd).

Episode 42: Special Guest, Jane Green (Educationalist and Adviser on Autism, EDS and HSD)
My guest on today's episode is Jane Green. Jane is an educationalist and adviser on Autism, Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) and hypermobility (HSD). Jane is autistic, and is a single parent of two, one with severe medical issues and one autistic. Jane was diagnosed as autistic aged 54 and we chat a bit about autism in women and late diagnosis.¬† Jane has volunteered with all ages to gain experience and study for her degrees. Jane worked in all phases of education, including epilepsy and autism schools. Unfortunately, her illness worsened, and she had to retire ‚Äúmedically unwell‚ÄĚ in 2015. Following this, she finally received diagnosis of Ehlers Danlos Syndromes (EDS), but sadly had no support as her illness was not officially recognised at that time. She started volunteering for the national EDS charity, but wanted to do more, so founded SEDS (Sussex Ehlers-Danlos and Hypermobility Support) in 2018.¬† Outside SEDS, Jane also volunteers her skills as a carer trustee for a local carers charity, and is an ‚Äúexpert patient‚ÄĚ for various other committees, patient ref. groups, clinical commissioning groups, NICE advisory committees, and social care round tables. She has sat on various guidance on autism from child to adult transitions, and has overseen new co-production autistic led social care tool kits to embed the NICE capabilities.¬† Jane's links:¬† Janes Twitter: https://twitter.com/JGjanegreen¬† More about Sussex EDS Group: https://www.sussexeds.com¬† My 21andsensory links:¬† @21andsensory¬†on¬†Instagram¬†-¬†https://www.instagram.com/21andsensory/¬† @21andsensory on TikTok - https://www.tiktok.com/@21andsensory¬† 21andsensory on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/c/21andsensory¬† 21andsensory Blog¬†-¬†https://21andsensory.wordpress.com¬† @21andsensory¬†on¬†Twitter¬†- https://twitter.com/21andsensory¬†

Episode 38: Special Guest, Jake Steiner from endmyopia.org
Hi everyone! Welcome to another episode of the 21andsensory podcast. On today's episode I have special guest Jake Steiner. Jake established Endmyopia.org as a resource to offer people the opportunity to explore the science behind our eyesight. Jake advocates for an evidence-based approach to understanding myopia (which is a word that means Nearsighted-ness)and he explores methods to potentially reverse it, he has his own experience reversing his -5 diopter myopia. He has helped over 1.2million people reduce their dependence on corrective lenses through his website, popular YouTube, Twitter, Facebook group, Discord and Forum. Jake stresses that he is not a medical doctor or optometrist, he just set out to solve a problem he encountered. So yeah i'm super interested to have a chat with Jake as I actually wear glasses 24/7! We chat about: What myopia is A bit about Jake, his background and his journey to improve and reverse his own eyesight When Jake started endmyopia.org to document his findings and how he slowly developed an extensive set of tools to help others My own eyesight and my journey with glasses His YouTube channel where he shares tips and advice through his (almost) daily beard videos! We wrap up with some general tips DISCLAIMER from Jake's website  We see myopia as a refractive state. Not an error, and certainly not an illness or medical condition. We explore scientific ideas here, not medical ones. Any advice and suggestions provided by Jake or @endmyopia is 100% unlicensed, unsanctioned, un-endorsed by the optometry establishment - because we discuss science and not medicine  Everything we discuss is also highly experimental, and you should absolutely always seek a sanctioned opinion if you are experiencing health issues or medical concerns. Lens use specific comments are for discussion only, and should not be considered medical advice, nor any of other suggestions provided herein. Depending on your local laws you may need to consult a local optometrist for prescriptions and medical advice. When driving, or any activity requiring full 20/20 vision, you should always wear your glasses that provide the full correction necessary for the task. If you have symptoms that might require medical attention, please visit an ophthalmologist or hospital!
