Micha & Ace's Dual Diagnosis Journey
“Our kids do not have to fit any measurement for their value or worth.” Micha said it here first but we’re pretty sure we all agree, right? That’s why today we’re discussing all things dual diagnosis with Micha Boyett, who’s son Ace recently received an Autism diagnosis. What has it been like to join the dual diagnosis community? How was receiving Ace’s Autism diagnosis different than his Down Syndrome diagnosis? Who have you connected with? And is there a gap between the Down Syndrome community and the dual diagnosis community (DS/Autism)?
We’re also diving deep into societal expectations of people with other types of disabilities and how those impact our goals for children, all the supplements and sensory tools Micha is using with Ace, and perhaps most importantly— sleep! This is a good one, friends. Thank you for joining us.
