#180 - Grateful for a Different Perspective
Show Notes

Since it’s the week of Thanksgiving, we are talking about all the things we’re thankful for. A few weeks ago, we asked you to share with us on Instagram what you’re grateful for, and what you love most about your sensory child, or yourself, if you’re a little on the neuro-diverse side. We got some amazing responses. We talk about how sensory kids look at the world with a different perspective, and how they teach us to do the same. One of our listeners has recently been diagnosed with autism and she shares how her differences are gifts that really aid her in her work as a professional nanny. Tune in to share the gratitude we all feel for our neuro-diverse kids, and the beautiful ways in which they teach us to slow down and notice the details.
