Blog #229~The Mighty Article: Navigating the Covid-19 Lockdown With My Son Who Has Down Syndrome and Autism
Here is an article that I wrote for The Mighty that was published last week about navigating the Covid-19 lockdown with my son Nick who is 26 years old and has a dual diagnosis of Down syndrome and autism (DS-ASD):
A silver lining in the Covid-19 lockdown, Nick and his Dad are taking long walks together when the weather prevails. I think a lot of families are doing this, how about yours? 🙂
Last Tuesday, my book A New Course: A Mother’s Journey Navigating Down Syndrome and Autism launched and is available on Amazon https://amzn.to/2W3Un6X
It was a full day of virtual activities with some fun surprises. I will share more about the launch events on next week’s blog. A New Course is now ranked #25 in the ENTIRE Disability Parenting category and #2 in Hot New Releases in that category. 🙂 Let’s keep the momentum going. You can do so by leaving an Amazon review–That is the BEST way to help get this book out into the world.
My mission is to help families, medical professionals, educators, DS support groups and every individual to truly understand this journey with my son– and to make things easier for everyone who is trying to help individuals navigate a dual diagnosis!
Thank you for all your support both in A New Course and this blog that has helped so many people learn more about DS-ASD.
That’s what is in my noggin this week!
