This podcast is the continuation to BYS 020 – Andrew Blaha: A 19 Year-Old with Autism. Part 1.

Andrew discusses the difficult topic of bullying in this interview as a teen with autism himself. He also discusses how help at school literally changed his life from anger to one with knowledge and comfort. This podcast also addresses the dangers of too much screen times for kids on the spectrum, even though Andrew himself thinks the internet is a wonderful tool.

In this episode, Andrew talks about:

  • How bullying is sick, but it happened to Andrew and many other teens with autism face bullying in some point of their life.
  • How parents are able to teach self confidence to their kids, and assure them that they are better human beings than the bullies, they will be able to take this life skill further.
  • The 5 inspirational people Andrew looks up to, including his father who never refused to answer Andrew’s long list of questions.
