At the end of each podcast Kirk says: you can do it! Having a severe kiddo, I need to hear this each week. Thank you!
I really appreciate this podcast. As a speech language pathologist it is not only informative, the podcast sheds a human light on autism. It has given me a glimpse into the lives, triumphs, and tragedies, of families with loved ones with autism. I feel like it has helped me professionally and personally as I work with students with autism.
