I couldn’t be more excited about this topic! This episode is going to tackle the how-to of taking care of your child with autism. We spend so much time debating how people get autism, that we place very little attention on the, “Now What?” We want to know how to get our kids to play with us, to communicate, to stop having meltdowns, to play with others and so on. You have to learn the language of autism to be READ MORE

Depression is the peak of grieving and almost guaranteed at some point in the journey of special needs parenting. Depression affects all of us, and the reason why it’s important to talk about it is that there are ways out of it. We don’t have to be depressed forever even though sometimes it feels like we will.

When I first started on the road of being a mom of a child with autism and epilepsy, I was a fish out of water. I had no preparation or warning and not a clue of how to be the mom I needed to be for my daughter who obviously needed so much care. Out of desperation, I turned to every single place I could possibly think of to find answers. I came up pretty short and was shocked that READ MORE
