Featured This Episode:
Alison Hamilton is a social worker, recovering journalist, and an imperfect parent of three daughters, a singleton with autism and neurotypical twins. She has been a frequent flyer at support groups since her daughter’s diagnosis, first as an attendee, and then as a coordinator. She helps other parents strengthen their advocacy skills in her Facebook group, Advocate Like a Mother.
Alison holds a B.A. in American Studies from the University of Notre Dame. She worked at newspapers in Texas and Florida before leaving journalism for social work. She earned an MSW from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida, and got early experience providing individual and group therapy at an outpatient addiction facility and a social service agency before moving to Maryland.
Within a year, she had newborn twins and an autism diagnosis for her oldest daughter. She describes the next several years as a bonus internship. By the time the twins started kindergarten, she had acquired plenty of real-world experience in advocacy, juggling professionals, understanding medical and educational jargon, and behavior management. She also managed to squeeze in some work as a school social worker, primarily in inner-city schools in Washington, DC, and now operates a solo private practice in Maryland.
