GENRE: KIDS & FAMILIES

A podcast about autism and family life

You’re invited into the home of Fiona and Travis, and their son Patch as they discover what an autism diagnosis means and what happens next.

It's the podcast Fiona and Travis needed when Patch was first diagnosed. They’ll explore issues including safety, lack of sleep, finding the right school, and how to help your child embrace their identity and prepare for adulthood.

This Australian family gains insight and understanding from autistic people worldwide as well as parents and professionals. If you're one of the millions of people globally with an autistic family member The Parenting Spectrum is your guide, your community and your support network.

This podcast will open your mind to all the incredible things autistic people wish the world understood.
