Episode 28 - Jeff's Story

Episode Summary:

I posted some questions to social media about the theme of my last show (when you disclose a diagnosis) and I spoke to 3 parents that had some strong feelings and experiences.

It’s time to hear the stories of Jeff’s Story.

The questions I asked:

  1. When you tell someone, your child has a disability, do you use specific terminology, do you just say disability, or does it depend on the situation?
  2. What do you do when someone replies in a way that shocks you?
  3. What are the responses that you’ve received?
  4. How many people have tried to “fix” your child or you with ideas, remedies etc…
  5. Have you ever had anyone declare that they don’t know how to respond?
  6. What do you want people to know about your child?
  7. What do you want people to say when you disclose?
