DESCRIPTION

An expert on autism by life experience - having a husband as well as two grown sons with autism – and by doing decades of personal research, Jennifer Wynn Stoll joins Dr. Meeker to discuss the effects and challenges of autism, as well as Asperger’s (an autism spectrum syndrome).

 

DR. MEG WITH GUEST JENNIFER WYNN STOLL (Part 1)

Guest Jennifer Wynn Stoll explains what it was like to find out - after getting married – that her husband had autism, and how this affected her marriage. After her two sons were born, they too were diagnosed with autism at an early age. Not wanting them to be ostracized, but rather experience a full, natural life, Jennifer set out to research and advocate for her family members.
