    Hey everyone, i am starting a youtube channel where i have conversations with those on the autism spectrum (formally or unformally diagnosed) , im trying to keep each video to 10 mins or less, to keep those interested.


    Id like it to be 5-6 questions and for this to be around the world, so others can understand how it affects people with a similar diagnosis. The goal is inspirational discussions , not by doctors, but the actual individuals themselves. I plan to be the facilitator and not interject my own narrative.


    Hi, "so and so" welcome to the...


    Tell us a bit about yourself, how old are you, what makes you - you?



    What do you do for work/career/school?


    What is your daily routine?



    What difficulties have you had from your diagnosis?

    what do you think helps you to get through the day?


    If you could think of an important message to relay, what would it be?


    Suggestions for questions that may not offend would be helpful, or if you know anyone who might want to participate, let me know.

    What is your diagnosis?
    What is it like to be autistic? (The more ironic the better)
    What is burnout?

    This would be a pretty difficult thing for me. The sort of question(s) that could leave me stuttering and grasping for something to say, or send me off on some long monologue that may not accurately represent me by the end.
    Basically, a bit about yourself and what makes you - you, just aren't specific enough. For me, anyway.

    I agree with Pieplup's "what are you diagnosed with" (if anything), and might add how old were you when you were diagnosed, and what led you to seek an assessment?

    I meant more along the lines of co-morbids other medical conditions. etc. etc. That should be it's own video.

    This is a great idea. I know for me that it takes me a while fo formulate my answer. I'd probably prefer to write my answer out before hand.

    It's an interesting idea and one that is unique from the other Youtube autism channels that generally only feature the channel creator.

    Would this be a podcast? Would people call in and incorporate a camera such as using Skype, etc?
