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!
