Do you feel alone and have a diagnosis of Autism? Our guest today Sam Mitchell, shares how he has taken his story and combined it with the stories of others and helps members of the Autism community feel connected. In the last 20 years, Autism has been on the rise, and with that, a need for connection has risen in the Autism community. We all know that feeling when you are around people who understand you and get you, and for people diagnosed with Autism, that feeling is even rarer.
