Ep 45: Special Needs Parenting with Kate Wells and Jane Fitzgerald
Kate Wells and Jane Fitzgerald, each the mom of a child with special needs, are here sharing everything they want other moms to know, and answering a pile of listener questions: how to interact with a child with special needs, how to include them in activities like birthday parties, how all kids can benefit from inclusion and how to answer when your child asks in the grocery store (loudly of course) "What's wrong with him?!" - they're sharing all their thoughts! I love the interviews that I do in person, and we sat around my dining room table on a snowy day having this chat together. Kate and Jane have also made themselves available if any of you have a private question for them - please reach out to me through social media or email firstname.lastname@example.org and I can put you in touch!
