Welcome to another epsiode of the Stories About Autism podcast!
This week I get to talk to Charlie Beswick who writes the blog Our Altered Life.
Charlie is the mum to twin boys, Harry and Oliver, and Harry is autistic. Often autism can be one of a number of diagnoses, and Harry’s story is unique in that he is also diagnosed with Goldenhar Syndrome
I had no idea what Goldenhar Syndrome was until I started following Charlie’s blog, and now I’m addicted to her stories.
So it was really great to get to talk to Charlie about it and learn more about Goldenhar, as well as what autism means for Harry and the rest of his family. We talk about some of the challenges that Harry has, how he’s progressed over the years, and how he’s developed a really strong relationship with his twin brother Oliver. We also get to talk about how one Instagram post of hers caused so much controversy she ended up on news outlets all over the world challenging Instagram!
Finally, if you enjoyed this episode, please leave me a review on iTunes, or Stitcher. I really want to help raise more autism awareness in the world, and your review helps more people find the podcast.
Thank you for listening, I’d love to know what you thought 🙂
