Highlights from our Conversation
Ken and I had a great conversation Live on Facebook. We heard about how Ken’s son regressed into autism around the age of 3. Going from counting to 10 in 3 languages to not speaking at all.
Ken talked about some of the challenges living in New York City with a 19 year old nonverbal son, a scary story on nearly losing his son after he wandered out of their apartment building. Through it all, we discussed why it’s important to stay positive and learning to transform instead of coping.
“Coping can help you survive, and transformation will help you thrive.”
Our live video is on Facebook now, but you can watch the entire video right here. To help improve the audio and video of future broadcasts please support my Kickstarter.
