Interview on Daytime Durham

Benj and Sarah on Rogers TV crop

I was recently interviewed by Sarah Newcomb on Daytime Durham to talk about some of the challenges of living on the Autism Spectrum. As this was my first time speaking on live television it was quite a milestone for me and Iโ€™d like to share it with everyone. ๐Ÿ™‚


I havenโ€™t watched it myself yet โ€“ Iโ€™m still too nervous โ€“ but Iโ€™ve included the link below and maybe one day Iโ€™ll work up the courage to watch myself. :p

    Benj you did SO WELL! Very eloquent, polite, informative, open, honest. I’m so proud of you! Love you bro!

  2. I’m very proud of you for taking this big step. You were amazing – and so professional. If I didn’t know better, I’d think you were a pro at interviews. I’m so happy you’re want to share your story with others ๐Ÿ™‚

    Amazing. I come across so many students on the autism spectrum as a high school teacher. I know your book will bless many who are struggling and feeling isolated. So well spoken in the interview too! I’d be petrified in front of cameras and would freeze up!

      Thank you for your compliments, Melanie ๐Ÿ™‚ Knowing it would be a live show was certainly intimidating. I think my time acting in my younger years helped me to feel more at home around a camera and crew. The environment itself was surprisingly comfortable.

    Benjamin, you did an tremendous job – articulate, and you got important pieces across. I work for a foster care agency. Our foster parents need this understanding as some of the children who come through their homes are affected by autism. Seeing you live, seeing how far a child can come, will encourage them greatly, so I’m sharing this with them. Thank you for your courage and willingness to step out to benefit others!

  6. What a blessing to come across your blog and your interview, Benjamin. I have a young adult in my family with A.S. So I will be looking at your book link. Loved your interview and what you’re doing. Thank you.

    Blessings ~ Wendy โ€

    Thank you for coming to Anderson this evening and sharing your experiences with all of us. I was so impressed with your public speaking abilities and very glad my son was with me to hear you speak as he was equally impressed. You did a remarkable job. I am looking forward to reading your and your mom’s book.

      Thank you! It was a very comfortable environment, and it was great to meet all of you and hear your questions. Over time I’m getting a better idea of what parents, teachers and others on the spectrum want to know, and that’ll be of great benefit to me in the future, so thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚
