Episode 6: Autism & Aging Out with Melissa Collins-Porter   On today’s episode I am chatting with my dear friend, Melissa Collins-Porter, we discuss a timeline leading up to her son's autism diagnosis, her goals for his transition into adulthood, the impact autism has on siblings and a family as a whole. Plus, I am excited to chat about her upcoming documentary film: Aging Out It’s a film about what happens when autistic kids grow up.  Premiering November 22, 2019. Check website for info and movie trailer  https://www.agingoutmovie.com/   Follow on  facebook https://www.facebook.com/agingoutmovie/ We also chat about the Lanterman Act. The film will also cover the history of the Lanterman Act, which is a law unique to California that has provided services to adults with developmental disabilities since 1969 - a time when no one could have predicted the current explosion in autism diagnoses.
