Episode 11: Finn

In today’s episode Maisie is joined by her friend Finn. They discuss raising Rob, Finn's son, who has a diagnosis of autism. Finn has struggled through the years in getting the help Rob rightfully deserves when it comes to education. Individuals who are seen as 'high functioning' often need a very high level support in many different areas - 'high functioning' autism does not mean easy autism, far from it.
