There is still so much to learn and share in the world of autism, parenting, and just pushing forward the conversation around difference.
We are happy to welcome Kristi Brewer today, who is very difficult to put into a box!
She is a mother to two daughters, weightlifter, CPA, business-owner, and all-around powerhouse for positive progress. Kristi admits when her second daughter was diagnosed with Autism she felt very overwhelmed and scared due to her ignorance on the subject.
Kristi explains how a whole new world of appreciation opened up for her, and why she is so grateful for this unexpected path.
We talk about the way we describe Autism, sensitivity to language, and supporting genuine curiosity for the subject. Kristi explains the positive impact of her daughter Kale'a's diagnosis, and how it made it more manageable.
We also discuss some personal practices in Kristi's home, how they approach activities and furniture, and the important balance needed in order meet her eldest daughter's needs too.
Kristi shares some of her interesting life philosophy with us around routine, priorities, and much more!
