Steph's Two Girls - Steph Curtis

Today I get to talk to Steph from the blog Steph's Two Girls. In case you couldn't guess, Steph is the mum of two daughters, and she shares with me her autism story about her youngest daughter Sasha who is autistic. Sasha's diagnosis is a little bit different as she is diagnosed with a distinct profile of autism called Pathological Demand Avoidance or PDA. I knew nothing about PDA until I found Steph's blog a couple of years ago, so it was great to get to talk to her, learn some more about what PDA is and share it with you all. We talk about how Sasha came to get a PDA diagnosis, what it means for her everyday life, and some of the strategies they use to help Sasha to cope. A really interesting and informative episode, I hope you enjoy it!
