Tourette Syndrome and Autism with Martin Moxness
Martin Moxness lives in Denmark and has many talents including being a successful Instagram a_different_spectrum and Tik Tok a_different_spectrum influencer, along with being creatively gifted in music and photography. Martin is autistic and uses his platform to raise awareness of his health conditions which include Tourette syndrome and ADHD.

Martin explains that he has mental tics, intrusive throughs, OCD, as well as a range of verbal tics and how they form in his mind.

During the conversation we discuss how the publics perceptions and prejudices have a damaging consequence, leading to supressing tics which causes exhaustion both physically and mentally. 

What we take from this podcast is the importance to normalise Tourette Syndrome, including tics and stimming, to foster acceptance and understanding.
