Dads of autistic children


– this one’s for you!

In this 3 minutes introductory episode, Paul Carroll,

Founder & Creator of Autism Dadvocate launches his first podcast with an overview

of his work and podcast.

In the episode, Paul Carroll, Founder & Creator of AutismDadvocate is going deep, asking fathers to reflect and journal on the questions below.  

Some of the questions are uncomfortable, some are insightful, but all of them are designed to spark new modes of thinking for these amazing Dads.

Meltdowns are rough. 


As Dads, we will do anything – ANYTHING to avoid a meltdown, particularly in a public place.  

So……….is there anything we can do?  The answer is…………YES!

The holidays can be rough – buying gifts, making holiday meals, and visiting with friendly and family in a pandemic environment – can all put stressors on our kids.  But for us Dads, one of the hardest parts is hearing the “armchair commentary” about how to raise our children on the spectrum from well-intended but deeply misguided relatives.

Meltdowns are tough.  As Dads, we experience a surge of adrenalin and anxiety when our child has a meltdown.


As a follow-up to Podcast #2, “Five Things Dads can do to Avoid a Meltdown”, Paul Carroll reviews the 8 things Dads can do during a meltdown.
