“Ask an Autism Mom” is an interactive Facebook live show initiated by LakiKid. The show is all about having a platform where members—autism parents, members of special needs families, or just about anybody who loves someone with autism—can freely talk and discuss about the never-ending list of issues that’s autism related.

From finding the right therapist to choosing the right daycare, understanding meltdowns and coping with bizarre behaviors, insurance claims and support, diet, sleep, toys, educational materials, and many others—Our host kickstarts the weekly discussions and speaks from her own experiences as an autism mom.

Tuning in to “Ask An Autism Mom” is a great way to stay on the loop with all the latest LakiKid news and announcements as well. Whether it’s a new product launch, collaborative events we’re gracing, or partnerships and campaign we’re setting off, you get the first dibs on those every Monday.

Meet Our Host

The show is hosted by LakiKid team member, Jenn, 35-year-old mother of two. Jenn’s daughter, Ryley, now 6, was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4.

When you stop by the show to have your questions answered, you can be sure that Jenn is a fellow member of the community, speaking from her own experiences. Not knowing where to turn after Ryley was first diagnosed, she is here to help ensure other families know they aren’t alone.
