My Guest Appearance With Rob Gorski on The Autism Dad Podcast

When Barclay was first diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder I was overwhelmed. Not only did I know nothing about autism, but I also didn’t know one parent who had a child with autism. I began to search online for help. Almost immediately I came across Rob Gorski’s website, The Autism Dad. I began to read his posts and listen to his podcast and felt a connection. On his podcast, he shares his life experiences with three children with autism and interviews with other autism parents as well as experts in the field.

I had the pleasure of featuring him on my podcast a few months back and most recently was a guest on his. I will post the links to both interviews below.

Thanks, Rob!

Dad's Talking Autism and Parenting (feat. Eric Rittenhouse) S4E3 The Autism Dad Podcast

My guest today is Eric Rittenhouse. He's the father of 2 amazing autistic kids and he's here to talk about his journey as a special needs parent. Eric has a fantastic outlook on life and an inspiring approach to parenting. I hope you find this conversation about the ups, downs, challenges, and victories of being an autism parent meaningful. It's so important to share our stories because we're all connected and we can learn a great deal from each other. Maybe Eric will inspire others Dads to share their stories as well. ☺ All my information and relevant links are (here) Please support this podcast: ( SponsorsThis episode is sponsored by Mightier.
