Three in-the-Trenches Lessons Learned in 2022 About Autism and Acceptance

Have you ever wondered how to help parents accept their autistic child for who they are?


We get no training in having this conversation - so it can be really tough.


Situations like these can leave you feeling lost, and wishing you could just give them all the answers.


But when you try, it turns out to be a lot harder than you’d think.


Even though you know the parent wants what’s best for their child, there’s still a process they have to go through to ultimately open their arms and hearts to the unique child they’re blessed with.


So, what can you do to help?


That’s what we’re going to talk about in this episode of Making the Shift.


As an SLP, you’re such a huge part of the child’s life that the long, tough road of accepting what it means to have an autistic child often falls into your lap.


Not only is it your job to counsel families on what ASD means for communication, but you’re also in a position to do SO MUCH MORE than that…


So tonight (Tuesday, 4/12/22) at 5 pm, Chris and I will be sharing the three hardest-fought lessons we’ve learned so far in 2022 when helping families to become more neurodiversity affirming.


Because there’s nothing more gratifying than helping your autistic kids and their families reach happiness and fulfillment!


So check out episode 2 of Making the Shift!
