69. Searching for Answers in our Autism Parenting World

podcast Jan 13, 2022

I remember 20 years ago when Jordan was diagnosed with PDD-NOS and how many questions I had.  Questions about what it all meant? Questions about what I was supposed to do? Was it curable or treatable? Like a disease? I honestly had no clue what getting a diagnosis meant for not only him but for our family.  

At the time, I didn’t know anyone who had a child with autism, and listen I was in my early 30’s so as you can imagine, I felt totally lost. I learned that autism is not a disease, it is a complex disorder and no two people would experience autism in the same way which in turn means that no two parents would be parenting the same way so I really had no one to turn to. I went to work determined to figure it out.

if you know a physician who is diagnosing autism or if you know a therapist or specialist who works with families whose lives are impacted by autism who would like some of our brochures to share with their moms, please let us know.
