Journalist Madison Hopkins asks the question “Are girls being diagnosed with autism more or are their numbers actually rising?”
Lynette endeavors to answer.
Madison is a reporter from San Diego working on a story about the rate of Autism diagnosis in females and the different ways the condition can present itself. Through this article she hopes to provide resources for women who are seeking out credible and straightforward information on the topic. A journalism student at SDSU, she starts working toward her masters at Northwestern in the Fall.
Madison and Lynette take a ‘new spin on’ interviewing by flipping roles throughout the show. First Lynette interviews Madison about her dreams and goals in respect to this article and then Madison interviews Lynette to get to the bottom of the question. It is a fully informative show with lots of good information on autism as a whole.
