The Special Needs Mom Podcast

Kara Ryska

Think of this podcast as your very own support group--except it's actually helpful and fun! You will leave with the hope that you can have a super happy life even when your life circumstances are super hard. You are a mom to a child with extraordinary needs. Your story is unique; it’s hard to find a place where you belong or where people get what your life is like. You find yourself managing all their needs, parenting your other children, staying married to your husband, and maintaining your career. All this has you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and dizzy---not knowing who to turn to or what to do next. This podcast will be your lifeline, you’ll be inspired and encouraged as we connect to other mom’s journeys. We’ll get practical and look at what it takes to stop being a victim of your own life.

048: Welcome back to the podcast. Today I have Kayla Monville sharing about her two children with autism and how she’s working to educate others as an author. Kayla tells us that it’s never an easy or normal day in her house with two children who have autism. She is also a special education teacher and as we dive into her story she shares that not even that prepared her for being the parent she is today. We talk about how much to share about our children, mom guilt and the idea that a single diagnosis isn’t always as simple as a recognized diagnosis. Kayla has been very productive during the pandemic and wrote and published a book about autism. She shares that she wanted to normalize and bring awareness to families that were being thrust into the world of autism. Kayla says her family felt so lost and such a lack of resources  in their local community. Rock with Me, Autism Inspired I Love You Book  can be shared with parents as well as siblings, cousins, classmates etc.  She is currently working on a second book.
