Why are #Autism parents Judged so Harshly? (S1E5)

If you’re an Autism or Special Needs parent, you are probably all too aware of what it feels like to be judged by those around you. My wife and I are no exceptions.

I know how bad it feels to be judged and I see how badly others are impacted by this as well.

Because this impacts so many people, I wanted to devote an episode to talking about judgment. It’s so important to help people understand how their words and actions can impact others.



Give this a listen and then pass it along to someone who could use the insight or would benefit from being reminded that they aren’t alone.. ☺

      So, probably any theoretical judgmental people didn’t actually say anything to you? Because it isn’t “noticing” judgmental people. It’s having them verbally criticize you, and especially during a sensitive moment when you’re trying to deal with your child.
