A Hilarious and Inspiring Conversation with Tara Reynolds and Lauren Flack (S6E15)

On this weeks episode, I sat down with Tara Reynolds from Peace, Love, Autism and Lauren Flack from the Channing’s Joy Foundation. Both are autism moms and both are amazing human beings. We had a conversation about their parenting journey. It’s emotional, hilarious and inspirational.

About Tara Reynolds:

A dedicated advocate and entrepreneur whose life took a profound turn when her son was diagnosed with autism at 18 months old. Seeking connection and a glimpse into other mothers’ experiences, she turned to social media but found herself wanting. Determined to create a supportive community, she embarked on her own journey, documenting it and becoming a source of solace for fellow special needs moms. This led to the birth of Peace Love Autism, an online shop offering stylish products and designs that spread acceptance, awareness, and love throughout the year. Through her work, she aims to create a space where individuals feel seen, understood, and empowered.


About Lauren Flack:

Lauren Flack is founder of The Channing’s Joy Foundation, where she is dedicated to promoting inclusion and acceptance of autism and all individuals with special needs. Her son Channing was diagnosed in 2018.
