Episode 5 - Julissa Becerra, Mother, Employee, Wife, and Student

Julissa is the mom of a bold, courageous, and charming boy with autism. Julissa also has three other children, works, is in school, and rocks at life! I have interacted with Julissa for several years now, as I was her son's (Jaiden) special education teacher for three years. During that time, I had the opportunity to get to know Julissa and her family and really love and appreciate her warmness, willingness to try new strategies, and patience. She truly loves her family and continually strives to provide the best opportunities to each of her children. In Julissa's episode, we chat about receiving a diagnosis of autism for Jaiden, her experience as a mother of a child with a disability, progress, and sibling interactions.
