There's often a stigma when it comes to someone with autism. But everyone with autism is different, and there is no single set of behaviors specific to this condition. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show Take Care, hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Dr. Barry Prizant, a clinical researcher and author of the book "Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism", about some of the ways we can change our perceptions when it comes to autism. 

Dr. Barry Prizant spoke with Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen. More of this interview can be heard on Take Care, WRVO's health and wellness show, Saturday’s at 6:30a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
