Episode 000 – Introduction Episode
This is the Finding Mikey Podcast… our family’s quest to prepare our son Mikey for life.
This is a podcast for families with kiddos on the autism spectrum.
I am Mike and from time to time I will be joined by my wife Heather or other family members and others for interviews and conversations.
While I may mention our son, you have a “mikey” of your own… and Together, we are on a journey to learn as much as we can so that we can understand how to best communicate and guide our kiddos into independent adulthood.
Thanks for tuning in!
This is the FIRST episode, but not really 🙂 This is episode 0, the one that’s like the “about” section of a website.
My plans with this podcast are to:
Provide a glimpse into our life, sharing the ups and downs and let you know that you are not alone…
I would like our family to connect with yours, we “Get it” and would love to talk about what we are doing to learn.
Share something with you weekly that will either educate or inspire you
I will have guests on to share their knowledge
I plan to review some books and products
Basically, I hope to share what we are learning in order to learn more!
See, Mikey can be a handful…
He is up too early in the morning, he is hyper-focused sometimes, and has meltdowns a few times a day.
He is snuggly, loves to tickle, is eager to please and has never met a stranger.
He pushes our buttons
He gives the best hugs
He climbs way to high and jumps off things, and charges full speed on his bike
He is not afraid to try new things
He is annoying to his older sister Grace
He is sweet to his little sister Joy – even if she is a pill!
We get it, and I know you do too!
So, I hope that you tune in from time to time, or friend us on facebook and instagram and connect, it’d be great to there for each other!
So that is episode 0!
See you again soon!
