In this week’s episode I am joined by my good friend Ashley Montano. Ashley has two special needs children and as you know, we’ve been on a journey of getting Dakota a diagnosis and professional support. We talk our experiences raising special needs children while sober, our opinions on ABA, navigating daily schedules, the pressure co-parenting can add, the support systems we utilize, financial stress of proper medical care, the importance of community, and the lessons our kids have taught us.
