This episodes is focused on the "official" diagnosis. I'm taken back to sharing my experience when my son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder when he was 3 years old. But, the diagnosis solidified what I already knew. I already saw signs, but was in denial about them and thought my son would do things in his own time , like talk, but I was wrong. In this episode, I take you through what it was like for me when I got the "official" diagnosis. The emotions I felt, but ultimately, what I had to do to move beyond my own emotions and focus on what needed to be done - to take action to advocate and support my son. 

If this episode resonates with you and you'd like to share how you handled the "official" diagnosis or if this episode is meaningful to you,  DM me. I'd love to hear from you. @susanfink.rise on IG and FB.
