About
A weekly podcast where we interview people living with disabilities or life prohibiting conditions across all of Ireland and abroad and how this impacts their daily life but equally importantly how they are able to overcome such barriers to lead a fulfilling life. We also aim to educate family, friends or someone recently diagnosed with a disease on what to expect and gain a deeper insight into dealing with it.

Episode 4- Sinead Keane- Living with Aspergers  This week we are joined by Sinead Keane who has Aspergers and we discuss the impact this has on her life and learn about her coping mechanisms and hear her brilliant advice on how best to help understand someone with this condition People with Asperger syndrome see, hear and feel the world differently to other people. If you have Asperger syndrome, you have it for life – it is not an illness or disease and cannot be ‘cured’. Often people feel that Asperger syndrome is a fundamental aspect of their identity. Autism is a spectrum condition. All autistic people share certain difficulties, but being autistic will affect them in different ways. Some people with Asperger syndrome also have mental health issues or other conditions, meaning people need different levels and types of support. People with Asperger syndrome are of average or above average intelligence. They don't have the learning disabilities that many autistic people have, but they may have specific learning difficulties. They have fewer problems with speech but may still have difficulties with understanding and processing language.  Contact Sinead on Twitter : @ainesinead  Listen to our podcast on spotify, google podcasts or via the Anchor app by searching Disability Ireland: https://open.spotify.com/show/4BHHqIi9Zzcqoz26DICCYr  Website: disabilityireland.com  Twitter: @disabilityeire  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/disabilityeire/
