The Isolation of Raising Kids on the Spectrum
with Ana & Curt Warner
In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I’m honored to have talked with Ana and Curt Warner about the challenges and isolation of raising kids with autism. They’ve shared their experiences raising twin boys with “low-functioning” autism in their new book, The Warner Boys: Our Family’s Story of Autism and Hope, and they’ve graciously shared a glimpse of their parenting experiences here with us. While your child may not have autism, the struggles and triumphs of this parenthood are much the same. I promise, you’ll be moved by their story.
“It wasn’t ever the pressure or exhaustion that was most troubling to us; it was the realization that our boys were in a kind of pain we couldn’t understand. For some unknown reason, everything was so hard for them.” — Ana Warner, The Warner Boys
