The Journey of a Father …with Rodney Peete
Each journey of the father of an ASD child is unique. Yet, there are so many valuable lessons to be learned from other Dads - the struggles, the confusion, the everyday miracles, and most importantly - the precious insights learned along that journey.
In this podcast, Paul interviews Rodney Peete, NFL star and co-founder of the HollyRod Foundation with his wife, Holly. They share their unique (and common) experiences raising an autistic son.
Rodney and Paul discuss the following:
Some early indicators that showed that their child was “different”
Hurdles that Dads (and Moms) face getting a successful diagnosis
Unique challenges fathers face raising a child on the spectrum
Common myths and stereotypes associated with autistic children (and what we can do about dipelling these stereotypes)
