During this weeks episode I'm sending a special shout out to all of the parents raising children with special needs.
Autism has been something that over the years has gained a lot of attention. Its gotten awareness but its time for more acceptance.
This episode has been brought to you by Big Heart Toys!
This weekend Maison received a pretty cool set of toys from @bighearttoys. They are great for all special needs children. At the push of a button the book begins to talk. It not only reads the story but shares feelings and solutions as well.
The books have both educational and enjoyable benefits. Such as building language skills, increasing behavioral and emotional regulation. The books are meant to be fun and informational for children.
They are easy to use and a great tool to use with you while you are on the go.

The truth about speech, language, and hearing science withTeresa Girolamo, Ph.D
Today Im sitting down with Teresa Girolamo, Ph.D., she is an autistic language in autism researcher and assistant professor in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at San Diego State University. As director of the Brain, Environment, and Language Lab, she works with racially and ethnically minoritized autistic individuals with language impairment. This population is underserved in research, hindering our ability to develop supports to meet their needs. Current projects include how social determinants of health plus language ability shape life outcomes and how to better understand strengths in language ability in this population. The long-term goal of this work is to translate this knowledge into community-based supports for individuals to meet their self-identified goals.
