It’s time for another weekly episode of Let’s Talk Autism with Shannon and Nancy! In this episode, our hosts talk about autism news having to do with Amy Schumer and something she recently said about the average autism diagnosis, an organization and a lawsuit that claims they discriminated against a former employee with autism and a memorable best man’s speech. After that, Shannon and Nancy are joined by the Founders of Maagalim Community Circles, Ayelet Zanberg Sason and Rachel Weizman.
