Love this podcast
I’ve only just found this podcast as I’ve just found out my two year old has autism, so was looking at Instagram for other parents to relate to and came across this page and the link to the podcasts. I listen to them on way to work. We’ve got a long journey ahead but it’s nice to know I’m not alone and others are going through the same. And it’s also nice to listen to discussions on autism and be more aware on the subject.
I’ve not long discovered this wonderful podcast and I just think it’s amazing, super informative and a fantastic way to raise awareness. Keep going with!
Informative and reassuring
I started listening and couldn’t stop, listened to all 3 in a row. I’m a mum to a son with Autism and listening to the other parents on the podcast who all have older children than me was very reassuring that I am doing the right things for my little boy. It’s amazing how strangers feel the exactly the same way as me.
