183. Navigating the Ripple Effect; Life Beyond the Diagnosis

podcast May 09, 2024

In this episode of the Not Your Average Autism Mom podcast, host Shannon Urquiola explores the concept of acceptance in the context of parenting children on the autism spectrum.

She discusses how accepting your child's diagnosis changes the trajectory of parenthood and reshapes the plans you once had.

Then she shares the concept of secondary losses - the unforeseen shifts and changes that accompany your journey. From the loss of certain milestones and expectations to the shift in social circles and relationships, she shares the impact of these secondary losses on your life.

Despite the challenges, you will find resilience, strength, and joy in the unexpected twists and turns of this parenting journey you weren't prepared for.

Join us as we navigate the complexities of parenthood, finding joy amidst the highs and lows, and embracing the extraordinary in the not-so-ordinary. šŸ’™
