Amazing resource + support

I couldn’t have found this podcast at better time . I have an eight year old and a three year old on the autism spectrum. My three year old was just recently diagnosed. Having two children with special needs is so overwhelming and scary I feel as if no one understands me . I binge listened to all the episodes and felt so understood and heard for once. All these strategies have been so helpful so far. I don’t think you realize the impact you can have on someone’s life with this podcast. I can’t wait for more episodes.

A Supportive Hug

I’m so glad I found Lisa’s podcast through the Autistic Mom’s page. I’m always eager to listen to the next podcast when it launches. Lisa is real and I love that she gives examples from her own life and clients. Thank you!

Empowering & relatable

Lisa is charming and funny with her no nonsense but gentle approach. She not only gets it because she’s done it but she recognizes the things that fuel us. You will feel empowered once you hear her words and do the work to put her guidelines into place.
