ABA Therapy - My Thoughts
Please understand I can only speak about what I witnessed and experienced when Scarlett was in ABA Therapy. I encourage everyone to form their own opinion by doing their own research, listening to different stories and view points. It can sometimes be hard to find unbiased websites but by keeping an open mind, and by filtering through both the good and the bad with your child's unique needs forefront, I'm confident you will make the best decision for your child and family.

Preparing for Emergencies
I talk about a recent emergency with Scarlett that landed us in the ER. This made me think about how prepared I am for future emergency situations. Get creative with brainstorming different ideas that will help keep your child safe or help prepare them (and you) for how you will handle emergency situations. Things such as really getting to know their sensory issues, having them wear a medical bracelet or something indicating they have a special need. I've found that Pinterest is a wonderful source for creative ideas.For Scarlett, we currently have an ID bracelet with her first name, her ASD diagnosis, my phone number and my husband's phone number (simply labeling us as "Mom" and "Dad"). We also have a GPS device we can clip on her clothing, for times we are visiting populated areas. We also have cameras outside out home. Not only for home security reasons, but in the event Scarlett ever gets out by herself. The cameras may be helpful in knowing which direction she went.Some emergencies can be prevented if the proper care is given, but many others are unpredictable and it's good to have thought them out at least once!

INTRO: What this podcast is all about!
When my daughter was diagnosed with autism at 2.5 years old, my husband and I were committed to setting her up to live her best life possible. It's not about our hopes and dreams for her, it's about hers. This podcast documents what we are going through as a family, how we're handling it, and what is (or isn't) working for us. There is no one-size-fits-all with autism, but maybe some people will be able to relate with our story.Disclaimer: This podcast is based solely off our family's experience and not that of a trained therapist, educator, or doctor.
