Nearly everyone knows someone on the autism spectrum, yet most of what people think they know about autism is wrong. Author, poet, and professor Daniel Bowman Jr. joins us for a conversation on how autism and other neurodiversities interact with our faith and relationships, and how neurodiversity can be received as a gift to ourselves and our communities. We also chat about art and faith!
Daniel’s book is On the Spectrum: Autism, Faith, and the Gifts of Neurodiversity. You can connect with him on his website, or on Twitter or Instagram.
Daniel lives in Hartford City, Indiana, where he is Associate Professor of English at Taylor University, Editor-in-Chief of Relief: A Journal of Art & Faith, and faculty advisor to Students for Education on Neurodiversity (SEND).
