Show Notes

Discover what’s possible when you are in charge of your life. 

Do you sometimes wish you had a team of supporters to guide you in the right direction? Maybe you already have trusted friends and family in your close circles. 

Either way, you’ll want to listen to this episode, which is part 2 of my conversation with Jonathan Gardner. He talks about how supported decision making helped him get through his cancer treatment. 

Jonathan Gardner is an Autistic Self-Advocate, cancer survivor, supported decision maker, and motivational speaker.

In this conversation, among other things, we discuss:

  • Jonathan being treated as a human being by his medical team

  • Supported decision making as an alternative to guardianship

  • Overcoming the fear of public speaking

  • Tips for other autistic people about not being defined by autism
