Creating Opportunities for Teens & Adults with Special Needs & Disabilities
About This Show
The special needs adult population has limited options. Many families struggle after leaving the school system due to loosing supports. Further down the line, housing becomes a concern as aging parents care for aging adult children. Your host, Kim Albrecht, has a teenage daughter with severe autism. She is happy, mild-mannered, non-verbal, in diapers, loves to swim, and will require 24/7 care the rest of her life. The LOMAH podcast and community is a place to gather information to make smart choices for our children as they transition into adulthood. We will also digest doses of inspiration and encouragement moving forward in faith, hope, (and touches of humor) rather than fear.
