Accepting The Unacceptable, Parenting Autism, Epilepsy, Special Needs

Feb 26, 2019

I remember when Remy was first diagnosed with autism. The first concern I had was that she wasn't able to communicate. If she couldn't communicate, she would never function in a way that could get her through life.

But what I didn't realize is that communication and speaking weren't exactly the same thing. There are plenty of people who can speak but they aren't using words to form thoughts and communicate them to another person. I never knew what a complicated task that was for our brains.

In this episode, I talk about how to get your child to communicate. It's not what you think, it's much easier.

We are going through a series based on the book ESDM An Early Start For Your Child With Autism.

I was lucky enough to have a parent training when Remy was first diagnosed with autism. A training taught with the principals in this book to teach parents how to work with their children.

One thing I thought of while doing this training, was that I was shocked that this wasn't available to every single family when they got a diagnosis. I still think it should be. 

But the amazing part, any one of us can learn because there is a book that teaches us.

So today's topic is taught from chapter 5 and its a good one. Go get the book.


I have a huge ask for you. If you like this podcast, would you leave a review on iTunes? It would mean the world to me and give me an idea of what you think of it but it also really helps other people find this show.

I have a mission to share everything I have learned with everyone who is going through this type of journey and the more people that find the show, the more opportunity that parents won't feel so alone.

Thanks so much. Enjoy the show.
