Why you shouldn't judge an Autism parent
Please Subscribe In this latest episode of The Autism Dad Podcast, I talk about judgment. Autism families often find themselves on the receiving end of judgment because people just don't get it or don't care. I talk about common situations in which judgment occurs and how cruel, thoughtless words can have a very real impact. If you have ever felt judged at any point in your Autism parenting journey, this episode was created with you in mind. I encourage you to share this with anyone who could benefit from this kind of insight. "Broken Plates" can be read in its entirety here: https://www.theautismdad.com/2019/01/15/why-you-shouldnt-judge-an-autism-or-specialneeds-parent-for-dropping-plates/ As always, you can find me at theautismdad.com

Do 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.

A 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. All the pictures for our trip can be found here.
