Autism Talk TV Ep. 4: Peter Bell of Autism Speaks
For the fourth installment of Autism Talk TV, I sat down with Peter Bell, vice president of Autism Speaks. In our interview, Peter Bell discusses his role at Autism Speaks in addition to what it is like to raise an autistic son. Peter also speaks about the controversial issue of finding a cure for autism and what it means to him as a father. Peter was also recently a guest star on NBC’s Parenthood, in which an autistic boy is one of the recurring characters.
I enjoyed talking with Peter and I think you will be moved by his story. Hopefully interviews such as this will help to shed light on the similarities between those of on the spectrum against the notion of “cure” and parents who are trying to give their children the best life possible.
