Today Maisie is joined by Lucy. Maisie and Lucy met through the charity Ambitious About Autism who are partners of this podcast. Lucy talks about her son Oscar, who is severely autistic and most recently was diagnosed with epilepsy. We hear about the early years of Oscar's development, ABA therapy, Treehouse school, Lucy's other children and her plans for Oscar's future. This episode personally resonates with Maisie as Charlie and Oscar present very similarly to each other and since recording, Lucy and Maisie have become firm friends.
