Today I’m chatting with autism mom Valerie Gilpeer. Valerie shares her incredible story with her daughter Emily. Emily was diagnosed with autism as a young toddler back in the 90s. Though she was non speaking, Valerie never doubted her daughters intelligence. Throughout her school years, Emily’s communication was always her biggest struggle. Her lack of language led to frustration and aggression. It wasn’t until Emily was almost 25 years old that she had a major breakthrough and she began typing. The first sentence she typed out was “I have been buried under years of dust and now I have so much to say.” That sentence was life changing for both Emily and Valerie. Emily is now a 28 year old, straight A college student and poet. Valerie shares that once Emily started communicating, it was like meeting her daughter for the first time. Together, Valerie and Emily co-authored their book ‘Buried Under Years of Dust’ which is available now. This is episode is so powerful and profoundly moving. I am honored to welcome Valerie to the podcast and I could not be more thrilled to share their story! To say I’m inspired by both Emily and Valerie is an understatement. Please enjoy listening to their miraculous story!
