Such a blessing

We got a diagnosis for our daughter (high functioning 7 yr old) in March and it has been very hard to connect and navigate this journey. It’s as though we got the diagnosis and “now what?”. This podcast hits on a lot of issues we are dealing with. So appreciate this.

Greater understanding

As an individual psychotherapist with limited background in ASD, listening to this podcast has helped me gain a better understanding of the challenges facing parents and other family members of people on the spectrum. Since ASD has historically been under-diagnosed, I believe that many adults have dealt with ASD in their families of origin without realizing it.
