5 Podcasts for Parents of Children with Special Needs

Are you a multitasker? We know many special needs parents are – whether out of habit or necessity. With so many items on the to-do list and hopes of still having a few minutes to yourself (after all, you need to take care of yourself  to take care of others), being able to do two things at once is a great perk. This is where podcasts come in.

Whether you’re cooking, driving, or administering a medication, podcasts are a great way to learn something while doing another activity. With so many different types of podcasts, there’s something for everyone – and with no cost, it’s a free resource available at your fingertips.

We put together a list of five podcasts specifically for parents of children with special needs and medical complexities – because sharing information and stories helps create an empowered and advocating community.
