How COVID19 Impacts the Autism Community (feat. Alycia Halladay) S3E26

In this weeks episode, I speak with Alycia Halladay again. Alycia is the Chief Science Officer at the Autism Science Foundation. We recently had a discussion about how COVID19 impacts the Autism Community. We talk about family stress, school related safety concerns and even touch a bit on the upcoming COVID19 vaccine because the antivaxxers are already moving to discourage people from taking a COVID19 vaccine when it's ready.
