The person that I am interviewing today is filled with fantastic knowledge about how to raise her Autistic child. I have been so intrigued to get to know her better after listening to her podcast. She is a mom that has decided to homeschool, but even if you don’t homeschool, listening to this podcast episode is going to be helpful for you.
We all have different journeys and listening to others’ journeys will help us better understand our options and the possibilities. She also shares so many ways that she has been super intentional. Including, great ways to set up a day and how to increase habits and routines without nagging or reminding. Not only that, she will share how and why to have 1:1 time with each of your children.
She is a mom that has done such a fantastic job taking initiative. Additionally, she sees the big picture about what she wants for her children’s lives, and she has learned amazing things along her journey. Listen in as she explains the beginnings of her journey and what she has learned along the way.
You will hear her explain how she came upon the realization that it was up to her and her husband to learn what to do to help her out of the box children.
She has 4 children with 2 being autistic children and 1 child has ADHD and dyslexia. She decided to custom fit what they needed in their home with the thought of what if the system fit them, instead of having their children fit into the system.
