You’re MORE Than Enough, It’s A Calling 


Welcome to Episode 113 of the Autism Parenting Secrets.

This week’s episode will change the way you look at autism. Dr. Zach Bush is our guest and he explains why we NEED Autism to experience our humanity fully and how parents can reframe their mindsets to best support their child with autism.

This discussion was previously released as two separate episodes: Episode 36 and Episode 37.  Due to popular demand, this is an encore and now the entire discussion is shared in this episode.

The information Dr. Bush shares will empower you to look at your child and your journey differently.  We discuss the invaluable role Autism needs to play in our society and what it’s here to teach us. Our children with Autism are put on this earth to help heal humanity as a whole, and as parents, we can be their greatest ally and guide. We are blessed Dr. Bush has been a mentor and a light in our autism journey.  The wisdom and love he shares has transformed our journey to support our son, ourselves, and our family.  We are so glad to be sharing this discussion with you.  We hope that it will help shed light and hope for you as your support your child. Please make sure to share this episode with anyone you know who is touched by autism.
