This week I had the pleasure of meeting Tammy Seguin. She's a single Mom of 2 kids, her oldest being autistic. She's on the show today to share a bit about her life and journey as an autism Mom. She's in Canada and we talk about some of the differences between how autism is handled in Canada vs the US. We discuss how school is going and how COVID has impacted their lives.
We all have our struggles and we all have our own unique stories. Taking the time to learn from each others experiences can help us feel more connected and less alone. :-)
About Tammy Seguin:

Currently doing remotely learning for both children. They actually have thrived on this type of learning versus standard school classrooms where it was fight every day to get them to go.
