In this show, we discuss all of it. Parenting, marriage, the autism world, epilepsy world and everything in between.
Welcome, I am so glad you stopped by
I've struggled the last few months and many times have felt lost. Not knowing where I'm going or what I'm doing. And I know that so many of you must be feeling the same way. So, in this episode, I am talking about what it is that we can learn from this situation and how we can do what is called Suffering Consciously.
(Q&A) How Do You Feel About People Using The R Word?
On this Q&A episode of the podcast, I am responding to a question about how offended we are when we hear the R word. We have to process through all the feelings that come with that because it's inevitable. It's all around us. So, I hope you will get a lot out of this and I would love to hear your thoughts on this as well!

How to Get to a Place of Acceptance - with Jody Warshawsky

I'll Do Anything to Change My Child's Diagnosis - with Jody Warshawsky
Today’s topic is ALL about bargaining. It is an important stage because it is one that will actually keep us stuck the longest. I don't think we even realize we are doing it. So, in today’s podcast, you'll learn all about what bargaining is and what it isn't, and why it's the foundation for getting to that place of acceptance.
So very real
Thank you for such an honest and real podcast about what we SpEd parents go through. Hearing what you have to say helps us all realize that we are not alone.
Someone that feels like me and not feel bad about it
My 5 year old daughter is autistic and I’ve known since she was 8 months old. In the beginning my family and friends dismissed my concerns. I’ve felt so alone, guilty, angry, and resentful - helpless. Jody’s podcast has completely touched my heart and jolted my negativity and depression BACK into being a great mom for my daughter instead of focusing on the negative, I’ve been re-training my brain and focusing on the positive. I need to be 1000% so I can be 2000% for my daughter. This podcast has helped me SO much.
I’ve just begun the journey with my almost 3yr. Old with no formal diagnosis and listening to this podcast has been helpful
A ton as I try to navigate and advocate for my son. I’m thankful to listen as you share
Your story and it’s opened my eyes to things I never considered (like the benefits of not trying to shoulder everything)
