Disorderly Blondes Autism PODCAST

Disorderly Blondes Autism PODCAST

South Florida moms, Brenda and Kristi, candidly discuss MOTHERHOOD and AUTISM while balancing heels, cocktails, and meltdowns. They share the challenges and triumphs that define the parenting journey of their own special needs sons (autism spectrum disorder + CHRNA7 genetic duplication). Together, they provide community support and a lifeline to parents of newly diagnosed children, teens, and adults. Guests bring essential professional information to educate and empower families. The blondes keep it light by coloring outside their tan lines and flipping off the PC police. Never a dull moment. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/disorderlyblondes/support... Show More

This tennis pro turned SLP champions local families who would feel sidelined without her love of giving everyone a shot at sports success.

We, autism moms, are completely punch drunk over school stresses, seizures, shade, scrubbing, sanitizing, sports bras, and seltzer. 

Cheers to all the special needs parents who have the stomach for education on Covid. For those who do not, we have a drink for that too!

Back to school, here we go!

Join the South Florida blondes for another unscripted, uproariously funny update to which only super autism moms (and masochists) can relate. Quarantine life may have cramped special needs schooling, birthdays, graduations, and vacays, but certainly not their style!

A few spectrum squirrels also sound off, but in the words of the fabulous Walter Mercado, "I never rehearse to be myself." Listen to this top podcast, laugh wit...

On this episode, the blondes are "FALL"ing back, and ironically it's rosé that helps their footing as they reflect upon homecoming, influencing, base running, and (sticker) swapping. Also, they see unicorns. Can this all be accomplished by remaining #onbrand? You'll have to listen to find out!
