One of the fantastic things about the internet is being able to find people in your 'tribe'. As a Speech and Language Therapist, I enjoy being able to hear from Parents who are going through similar things to the families I work with.
It is reassuring too, when you can see families implementing ideas like the ones we suggest in therapy all the time, and seeing them working, and celebrating their successes with them.
Chrissy is Mum to Greyson and Parker, two boys on the autism spectrum. She talks about, and posts videos of, a lot of their Speech Therapy sessions. She also is a powerful advocate for their use of their AAC (alternative and augmentative communication) devices, and shares videos of the family modelling.
Chrissy also posts about family life and lots of other things. Following this page is a life-affirming experience.
