    Carolina Guiterrez on ADHD

    Carolina Guiterrez on ADHD

    When advocates discuss Neurodiversity, we include ADHD alongside autism, and many autistics also have ADHD diagnoses. As this audience knows, my daughters and I all have ADHD diagnoses. Our struggles differ, however, because ADHD takes many forms.
    On this episode of the podcast, I’m being joined by mental wellness advocate Carolina Gutiérrez. Carolina describes her ADHD as a superpower. She’s harnessed her energy as a serial entrepreneur, health advocate, and counselor.

She guides business owners and seekers alike on the importance of intuition first, challenging you to think about work from the inside out. With her business & counseling skills, Carolina brings peace, time, and profits to business owners feeling overwhelmed.
    As an implementer, with her unique ability to speak to the energy of business and feelings, she taps into the spirit of purpose-driven entrepreneurs to enable them to deliver on their promise to make the world a better place. Carolina intuitively weaves practicality with purpose and mission while encouraging her clients to do the same.

    Back to School, Back to Special Ed Advocacy

    Back to School, Back to Special Ed Advocacy

    The back-to-school season is upon us. For our family, that means preparing paperwork for IEPs or 504 Plans. Yes, it’s time again for the alphabet soup of special education jargon.
    Your student with an ASD, ADHD, SLD, or ID might need an IEP with a BIP to ensure an LRE for the FAPE within a public school. Don’t feel too bad if you didn’t understand all of that.
    How bad is the alphabet soup? A guide for parents provided by the Texas Education Agency, also known as the TEA, lists more than 120 acronyms used in special education. An appropriate response, when presented with this list, is W-T-F.
    When you’re the parent of a Neurodiverse student, your perspective on education is shaped by how difficult obtaining the legally mandated supports might be.

    Season Six Promo: Rebranding The Autistic Me Podcast

    Season Six Promo: Rebranding The Autistic Me Podcast

    Perspectives on Neurodiversity vary based on our experiences. I am a father, a husband, and an autistic self-advocate. My understanding of Neurodiversity has changed as I keep learning from the experiences that come with those roles.
    I am Christopher Scott Wyatt, creator of The Autistic Me blog, and for the last five years, I have hosted this podcast.
    As I began working on season six of the podcast, I realized it needed a new name. What began as an effort to share my autistic experiences became a podcast about Neurodiversity more broadly. This podcast features discussions about the countless Perspectives on Neurodiversity, with The Autistic Me, C. S. Wyatt, as your host.

    Why I Need a Yard: Roses, Trees, and More

    I recharge outside. My wife can attest that I buy too many plants and dream of even more. My dream is a personal park with various garden themes: an English rose garden, a Japanese garden with a koi pond, a colorful cottage garden.

    George Bailey on Sleep and zPods

    George Bailey on Sleep and zPods

    George Bailey is a father of five children, two of whom are autistic. He and his wife are also Neurodiverse; George has ADHD and his wife is a self-diagnosed autistic.
    He earned a Juris Doctor from Washington University in St. Louis, a master of arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), and a bachelor’s degree in Chinese from Brigham Young University. George is fluent in Mandarin Chinese, German, and Danish.
    I was curious about his title “President Sleep Talker” of zPods. In that role, he promotes the importance of sleep and discusses the potential benefits of zPods, sensory-friendly beds for high-energy children, including those with autism.
    George mentions several books during the conversation. Here are some of the titles he considers valuable resources:
    Why We Sleep, by Matthew Walker [https://amzn.to/3x91sWf] The Sleep Solution, by W. Chris Winter [https://amzn.to/38Mf1TD] Sleep Smarter, by Shawn Stevenson [https://amzn.to/3MgkVKp] George and I avoided making this episode all about zPods, which was important to me. We enjoyed chatting about parenting, Neurodiversity, and our shared interest in entrepreneurship.
