What is Isaac’s Clubhouse? It’s a safe place for children on the autism spectrum to congregate, explore interests, and make connections with peers in their community. In this episode, members of our Tuesday after school Clubhouse crew join me for their first ever podcast experience. You’ll have to forgive the excessive background noise as the kids learn how to have less fidgets and quiet hands.
