Episode #29: Parenting a Child With Autism

Parenting a child with autism isn’t easy, and adding homeschooling could make it more difficult. In this episode, you’ll meet Fiorella Perkins. She is a “girl mom, homeschooling, autism advocate,” and she spends some time talking about how her daughter was diagnosed with autism just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Some of the challenges she faced in finding ways to help her daughter may not be the same today, but Fiorella has some creative ideas of how you can help support your child with autism.

Listen to her story and why she has become a strong voice that is helping thousands of other parents guide their children and support each other! This is the first of 2 interviews with Fiorella.

Be sure to join us for the second part of the interview to learn more about what she is doing to create a supportive environment for families who have children on the autism spectrum and how you can create the same where you live!
