Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome have impacted our family, and this is the chronicle of our journey. We are Mike and Heather, and we share stories from our family, along with interviews from experts in the Autism community. We will talk with Authors, Specialists, Doctors, Activists and legal professionals to gather insight on how to better prepare our kids for full integration into school, society and independent adulthood. Our goal is to INSPIRE other parents, a little bit each day, so that they feel confident in their abilities as parents and to help them be the best advocate for their kiddos' growth. http://www.findingmikey.com

We spent fourth of July in Washington DC and we definitely learnt some lessons and I’ll share them with you. Firstly, get there on the 3rd of July, they do a concert dress rehearsal and it’s must less people than the main show. Second, skip the parade, there’s no personal space at all but definitely plan to be out by the Washington Memorial to watch the fireworks at night. If you’re ever in DC let us know and we’ll give you some more tips.

Rank #7: The First Few Weeks of School in VA

Podcast cover
Read more
Today’s podcast is all about the first few weeks of school. Since our move to Virginia we have had quite a few changes taking place. We have been able to enjoy the first day of school three times this year, with Mikey in particular. As he left Terra Vista Elementary School and we transitioned him over to Empower School, which was full on, full fledged, deep ABA therapy 7 hours a day. He’d get two therapists and very dedicated coverage. We loved it and he was benefitting very well. The timing was right for Mikey to transition over to a traditional school.
