Parent to Parent (feat. Amy Nielsen) S3E29

In this weeks episode, I have a parent to parent conversation with Amy Nielsen. She's an autism mom, author, educator, blogger, podcaster and early intervention specialist. We talk about her amazing family, life as an autism parent and how COVID has made things more challenging. We also talk about how her and her husband are navigating the new school year.

It's a great conversation and one you can definitely relate to. :-)

About Amy:

Amy is a former educator with seventeen years experience. Her educational background includes teaching second grade, elementary media specialist, middle school television production teacher and middle school media specialist.

After her fourth child was diagnosed with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder, she left her full-time teaching career so she would have the flexibility to meet the demands of this special parenting role.

Amy runs the Big Abilities Blog and Podcast. I am also a freelance writer for Playground Magazine , contributing author at The Mighty. author of the book It Takes a Village: Get Your Hands Dirty and Build Yours From the Ground Up  and Parent Advocate and Early Intervention Specialist at Collaborative Corner for Exceptional Children.

About Me:

Please remember that self-care is more important than ever. It's not easy but we have to do our best to look after ourselves, especially during these turbulent and uncertain times.

Please listen and share with anyone that could benefit.
