SPECIAL EDITION LOBCAST - SCHOOL OF THE ROAD : AN AUTISM & ADVENTURE DOCO - a podcast by SLICK LOBSTER ADL PODCAST
SPECIAL EDITION LOBCAST! Welcome friends to a slightly different - and way more important - episode of the Lobcast. We sit down with filmmaker Sam Austin, and [legitimate hero] Trav Saunders. At 21 months old, Trav & partner Fi’s son Patch was diagnosed with autism. After years of full-time therapy, with mixed results for Patch - and the family struggling - they made the call to head out on an adventure. Biking from the West coast to East of the mighty USA, the Saunders family decided that things needed to change and some disruption would be good for team morale; and the change of scenery and new experiences might bring about some positives for Patch too. 5600kms later, and some beautiful growth for Patch, the gang are doing it again - this time on the Mawson Trail from the Flinders Ranges to Adelaide - to make a film, an educational resource for schools, and spread the word on empowering children with autism. The narrative around embracing autism and the positive capabilities of kids and adults with autism needs to change. Trav, Fiona, Patch, and Sam are making it happen. Have a listen, get on board, and donate to their campaign below.
