Since 2021, Gilda Evans has hosted and produced the Autism Resource Podcast while being a single mother of three. Through personal experiences and research, she has become an advocate for parents of children with autism. Now her platform has the opportunity to grow and reach a wider audience.
With over 20 years of research, life experiences with her son of special needs, and helping fellow parents, Evans realized she could help on a bigger scale. The “self-taught advocate” took charge to create a platform to help many.
Now reaching 100 episodes, Evans has covered an array of topics such as education, therapy, neurodiversity and disability, and autism research. There is also a variety of guests, ranging from California State Sen. Anthony Portantino and Temple Grandin to leading researchers and practitioners.
Soon, Evans’ podcast will become the Autism Resource Project (ARP). ARP will serve as the center for numerous resources like supports and products to help families, educators and caregivers in the autism field, community connections, and more.
