||CleanDo you know why Meltdowns are NOT a disciplinary issue?||Sensory Processing Disorder and Meltdowns are two of the most commonly misunderstood things that an Autistic person can experience. Even more confusing is how to know the difference between a meltdown and a tantrum. Those words are used interchangeably and that’s a major problem, leading to a great deal of misinformation. This episode will help to explain how these things can impact people and how to tell the difference between a meltdown and a tantrum. You’ll also hear from Emmett, my youngest, as he talks about how SPD impacts his life on a daily basis.

||CleanA Very Emotional, Heartbreaking Interview||In this episode, I share a very emotional interview I gave last year during the annual Wish-A-Thon. We were helping raise awareness and money for an amazing organization called Wishes Can Happen. They grant wishes to local children with life-threatening or terminal health conditions, like my oldest. It's very difficult to talk about but it's so important to raise awareness for organizations like Wishes Can Happen. They do amazing work and what they provide children like my son, as well as families like mine is beyond measure. This is our story. Wishes Can Happen You can read all about our trip here.
