Ep. 13 – Sandy Payne talks About Helping Scouts with Autism
Today’s episode features the return of my good friend Sandy Payne. You may remember her from Episode 1, where she did a great overview on working with Scouts with Special Needs. Sandy’s an expert on helping Scouts with Autism, and I always learn a lot from our conversations.
We recorded this episode at June Norcross Webster Scout Reservation in Ashford, Connecticut. I’d like to thank them for hosting us.
