Podcast 01: At Peace

Amy shares the stages she went through as her son was diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech, then Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and ultimately Autism Spectrum Disorder.  From the initial feeling of being “Punched in the Gut”, then to the “Pushing Up the Sleeves” stage of learning everything you can, and finally to the “At Peace” when you have come to terms and accepted where your child is.  Amy hopes this podcast will help parents of special needs kids find that peace in their parenting journey.
