Why does our community sometimes perceive Autism as taboo? And how far have we gone to not have open discussions about this subject?
The reality is, Autism is not uncommon – it is known to be the third most common developmental disorder UK and this podcast plunges straight into the devastating impact that a lack of empathy can have on a family.
In this ear-opening episode, Rajan stays in England to speak to Rahul, a father of a child with autism and the dramatic impact it has had upon his and his family’s life. The conversation is a raw, heartfelt account of day to day battles, loneliness, ostracisation from our community, but above all, love and determination to bring up a beautiful child in a beautiful world.
