Grateful

So grateful for these ladies and their commitment to making sure we all have the opportunity to be part of a community in autism world. It is so easy to get isolated in the day to day grind with work, family, life… it is essential to know other autism families and connect. Thank you mamas for doing this! XoJanice

Perfect for those with older family members on the Autism Spectrum

Lots of great info given by two moms with older children on the Autism Spectrum. These ladies give the honest truth and real solutions to living and thriving after an Autism diagnosis. Appreciate all their insight and willingness to share their experiences. It is hands down one of the absolute best podcasts for parents of children and young adults with Autism.
