Oxygen Mask Episode 013: We’re in the same storm: A COVID chat


Welcome to back-to-school: Pandemic edition, featuring parents jostled and swirling in a sea of uncertainty! In this episode, Beth and Tera check in on stress symptoms and coping strategies. What helps you feel safe and tethered down in these stormy times? Hear the hosts’ thoughts on what’s been harder and what’s been easier about a socially distant summer. Tera and Beth remind themselves and their listeners to go back to the basics of supporting ourselves and our family members, especially those on the spectrum. Friends, it bears repeating: Please secure your own oxygen mask before helping others.
