    Giving Voice to Your Courage with LeeAndra Chergey

    in Family

    Dorit Sasson, creator of Giving Voice to Your Story, interviews LeeAndra Chergey, author of Make a Wish for Me: A Family's Recovery from Autism.

    When LeeAndra Chergey is told that her son, Ryan, is no longer considered “normal,” she and her family are forced into a new way of handling the outside world. Together, Chergey’s family and a team of carefully chosen therapists put in years of hard work, and eventually teach Ryan to speak and express emotions. Through it all, Chergey follows her heart—and in the process, she learns that being “normal” is not nearly as important as providing your child with a life full of joy, love, and acceptance.Tender and candid, Make A Wish For Me is a story of accepting and tackling a disability stigmatized and misunderstood by society.

    We'll talk about the courage it took her to deal with a system that did not support her family and autistic son and the courage it took for her to recover and live life fully. This is a podcast you definitely want to tune into!
