Parenting Impossible – The Special Needs Survival Podcast

Parenting: Impossible – The Special Needs Survival Podcast is a podcast dedicated to giving compassionate advice for all stages of life. Our conversations revolve around the entire special needs community including those with autism, intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health issues and more. Parents and experts (and sometimes parents who are experts!) discuss a whole host of issues facing the special needs community including raising children with different abilities, transitioning into adulthood, sibling challenges and how to effectively navigate the complex systems in our world. We offer inspiration, support, expertise and a wide range of discussions that will help you survive and thrive as you support your loved one with special needs. Imagine yourself having coffee with a friend and discussing all the important challenges in your life – but your best friend is an expert! Hosted by Attorney Annette Hines, special needs mom, author of the best-selling book Butterflies and Second Chances, national expert speaker, writer and contributor to publications, and founder of the Special Needs Law Group based In Massachusetts, Annette has regular guests that include experts in the field of special needs, siblings that offer stories and survival tips with a positive message.
