Episode 166- Throwing out the parenting manual, with mom & podcaster Megan Champion

Adventures in Autism show

Summary: Today I’m chatting with mom and fellow podcaster, Megan Champion. Megan shares her journey with raising a neurodiverse child. From the time her son was a baby, Megan had noticed differences between him and his twin sister. It wasn’t until toddlerhood that those differences became concerning. Megan sought out therapy for him and many of her concerns were addressed and he excelled. However his behavior, particularly with meltdowns was becoming problematic. Megan shares how typical parenting strategies did nothing to help matters. From there she had him evaluated for autism but he was not diagnosed and simply got the label of “quirky”. In the following years he’s been evaluated again and while he is gifted, he has never gotten a diagnosis of autism. Megan talks about the challenges of raising a child that is out of the box and doesn’t fit in the world typical. I found their story so interesting and I know many of you can relate. I loved chatting with Megan (both here and on her podcast!) and I hope you enjoy listening!
