Tim Welcomes Angela Powell and The Discuss Her Son Charlie and the Organization She is Creating, Mad Charlie In

Tim Welcomes Angela Powell and The Discuss Her Son Charlie and the Organization She is Creating, Mad Charlie In
This was a super enjoyable episode to record for multiple reasons. Angela Powell has a super upbeat and infectious personality which is a great start. Based on her families experience with her son Charlie and the way the medical culture and schools systems recommended she learned that at least for Charlie the approaches were ineffective at best. One of the statements she made that really struck me was that she and her husband came to realize it wasn't Charlie that needed therapy, but her and her husband. This realization revolutionized their view of autism and the approaches that would best enable Charlie to grow to be the adult able to become all is capable of.After their extensive efforts to find resource which could help them to support Charlie and allow him to flourish, Angela saw the need to help parents find the information and services they need to support their child from the perspective of the neurodiversity culture instead of the disability culture. Being the motivated and caring person she is Mad Charlie Inc was created to fill this need.Join Angela and Tim as they talk about what lead to the creation of Mad Charlie Inc, experiences with Charlie and the amazing change when they moved away from the disability/deficit model. Join Tim for a delightful and educational conversation with the amazing Angela Powell.Contact information:Website: madcharlieinc.comInstagram: @madcharlieincFacebook: Mad Charlie IncLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/angela-powell-madcharlieinc
