Welcome to Autism Blueprint’s Kitchen Table Talk- a series of episodes where my husband, Joe, and I share some of our experiences living with autism over a cup of coffee at our kitchen table with you. So pull up a chair and join us.
In this episode we will be talking about:
What autism parents are learning from their COVID experience.
- We posted a question on our facebook group to find out how the COVID pandemic and quarantine have been effecting our families. We’ll be sharing your responses in today’s episode. And the answers may surprise you!
- The stressors of school starting up again in the midst of a pandemic.
- Valuable lessons Janeen has learned from Joe along the way.
- How our upbringing and experiences in our families of origin can shape how we respond to an autism diagnosis.
Meet Hosts Janeen & Joe Herskovitz
If you’ve been listening to the podcast, you’ve met Janeen, (click here if you haven’t) but you may not be familiar with Joe, her husband of 25 years.
He’s been an autism dad for over 22 years, and is a retired Social Studies teacher with St. John’s County, Florida. He enjoys spending time with his family, playing ukulele, cooking, hitting golf balls in the backyard, and rooting for Philadelphia sports teams.
Joe & Janeen decided to start recording together after talking one day and wondering if their conversations could benefit other couples trying to navigate their own “new normal” in an autism household.
