71. Down Syndrome, Autism, & Motherhood w/Teresa Unnerstall
Teresa Unnerstall is an author, speaker, consultant, and mother to Nick - her 26 year old son with a dual diagnosis of Down Syndrome and Autism. She has nearly 3 decades of experience on dual diagnosis.. which means this episode is full of wisdom, and so is Teresa! She shares three tips to keep in mind for your kiddo with DS/ASD including behavior specialists, speech therapists, and sensory diets (and we’re not just talking about food here). We’re also chatting all about her book, “A New Course, A Mother’s Journey Navigating Down Syndrome And Autism” and what to ask for in an IEP meeting. Teresa’s experiences over the last 26 years offer a glimpse into what the future might hold for our kids with a dual diagnosis. (Hint: it looks pretty good).
