In today’s episode, we dive deep into a topic many parents grapple with: how to tell your child they have autism. Join me as I sit down with my incredible 15-year-old son, Emmett, who himself is autistic. He shares his profound insights and personal experience about being on the receiving end of this pivotal conversation. Emmett’s perspective is truly enlightening, and I couldn’t be prouder to share this moment with him and all of you. Tune in for an episode packed with wisdom and understanding.
