**UPDATE** We received some valuable feedback from members of the Autistic community that we wanted to share. The puzzle piece and color blue are no longer symbols the community recognizes.  The new symbol is the infinity sign and the colors are red or gold.  We were also made aware that the organization we linked in the show notes had some harmful ideologies and practices. We are updating our image and links to reflect this new information.  We appreciate the feedback and chance to learn and be better allies to the Autistic community.  Autism affects an estimated one in 54 children in the United States. In this month’s episode of Fostering Conversations, we hear from a Salt Lake County foster parent on the autism spectrum and a mother of a child with autism. It’s a fascinating perspective, as they help us learn how to recognize the unique strengths and challenges of each person. Resources: Autistic Self Advocacy Network ADOS Diagnostic Test  ChildMind.org- has resources and information and guides for autism and other issues in a child’s life.   Symptom Checker-a great starting place to learn more about divergent behaviors.   Want to learn more about becoming a foster parent in Utah?

Bob Saget's Here For You

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
