"There's so much pressure on autistic people to mold themselves to what we think is normal but really there's no such thing as normal."

It was really refreshing talking to Edel from Galway about her neurodiverse family. She told Alison that while they acknowledge the disability side of autism; the children do face significant challenges, it's also important to recognise that they have the right to be themselves.

Edel is running this year's VHI Mini Marathon to raise funds for Galway Autism Partnership (GAP). Have a listen to her chat with Alison Curtis on Weekend Breakfast:
