The Oxygen Mask Podcast: An Introduction. Episode 001

| 2 Comments

The inaugural episode of The Oxygen Mask podcast is now available!! We are so excited to be sharing our knowledge this way. We know parents, especially special needs parents, are busy and our hope is to give you a short break in your day to become very intentional with your wellbeing and your parent role. Take a pause and a breath so you can best help your child. We will not overwhelm you with lots of shoulds and to dos. We want to empower you to navigate the autism path in your own way. We feel a podcast format is wonderful because it builds a sense of community and allows you to digest information in small doses while giving you the power to investigate ideas further on your own.
