Pushing Limits - August 1, 2008

Autism rights/ Aspies for Freedom
Pushing Limits delves into the Autism rights movement. Pushing Limits producer Doyle Saylor, Hosts Eddie Y'tuarte and John Healy interview Earth Monkey (Melody Kohut), a vocal member of the Aspies for Freedom or AFF, a grassroots autism rights movement.

Autism has been in the forefront of local news lately stemming from charges of discrimination when employees with Autism and other developmental disabilities were fired from a Berkeley McDonalds allegedly for no cause. John Healy and Eddie Y'tuarte talk about what AFF means by neuro - diversity. They also explore other new disability rights concepts in the context of social prejudice against people with Autism.
