So needed

What a great need this fills—night into such a challenging struggle from someone who has insight into the issues faced. I’ll certainly be recommending to friends who are moms to autistic kids

I had a great time talking with Dr B and sharing our family’s experience. Thank you for bringing these issues to the public eye.

Such a great resource for parents!

Dr. B and her guests are informative and so relatable to parents and caregivers of those on the spectrum. Each podcast has provided information and resources that were new to me even though I’ve been on this journey with my son for 7 years since his diagnosis. Please keep the episodes coming as they provide encouragement and hope for all that the future can hold for my son!
