Today I’m chatting with fellow autism mom and podcaster, Hayley Augusta. Hayley shares her journey with her son Charlie who was diagnosed with ASD in 2019. Charlie is also hyperlexic and extremely bright. Because he’s a twice exceptional kiddo, Hayley encountered a lot of differing opinions while they were seeking a diagnosis. Hayley explains how parents are expected to “learn a new language overnight” when you are thrust into the world of autism. I couldn’t agree more! We also talk about her career before her son was diagnosed and the difficult decision to leave her job. Ultimately, Hayley did want a project to work on and that led to her podcast “No Sex in the Suburbs” which focuses on all facets of motherhood and what happens *after* happily ever after. Hayley is so honest and real- I had the best time chatting with her! We had a great conversation and I hope you enjoy listening!
