  • We Are More Than Just Parents (S6E34)
    In this week's episode, we dive deep into the notion that we are 'more than just parents.' While parenting, especially when it comes to special needs children, often takes center stage in our lives, it's crucial to remember the unique individuals we are outside of that role. I’ll discuss personal experience in regards to losing a sense of self and how that all ties into self-care. Don't miss this empowering conversation designed to help you rediscover yourself beyond parenthood.

  • Season 6 Mid-Season Announcement
    Hey, what's up guys? It's Rob Gorski with The Autism Dead Podcast, and I just have a couple of quick, uh, announcements and some housekeeping things, uh, just to keep everybody on the same page, let you know what's going on for the next couple of weeks. Um, we're about 35 episodes into season six and, uh, it's a lot of episodes for one person to manage with. Everything else that I'm doing. I. So it's about that time of year where I take a break, right? Uh, so we're gonna take off most of September, and, and that just means that there'll be no episodes airing on Mondays. I'm gonna continue pushing out episodes every Wednesday. For, uh, like the parenting Q&A stuff, when you guys send in questions and I just kind of answer them briefly, it takes a couple of minutes. Those are more manageable right now, and I can, I can pull those off while I'm doing all this stuff on the backend. So for the next few weeks, uh, probably through the end of September, it'll just be releases on Wednesday and then we'll pick back up in October. It may change just kind of depending on how everything goes because I'm going on vacation in September. So, uh, we'll just kind of play that by ear. But I just wanted to let you guys know that's what's going on. So there'll be no Monday episodes. Uh, through the end of September, but Wednesday episodes we'll continue as well as episodes releasing on the Autism Dad Ohio podcast as well. Those drop every Friday, so you guys make sure you can check that out as well. So you can always stay up to date by visiting theautismdad.com and, uh, there'll be up-to-date information there as well. So, uh, thank you all so much for tuning in. I really appreciate all the continued support and, uh, remember Wednesdays we'll be releasing and Mondays we'll be back. In end of September-ish. All right. Thanks a lot guys. We'll talk soon. Bye.
