Episode #231: “An Autism diagnoses is not devastating” – KICBUMP with Em Rusciano

Em Rusciano wears just about every hat – she’s a comedian, podcast host, writer, TV presenter, singer and former radio host, but on top of all of that she’s also a mum of 3. All of her children happen to be neurodiverse, and she herself was recently diagnosed with ADHD and Autism.

Em has shockingly faced public criticism for opening up about her diagnosis, with people claiming that it’s for attention. In today’s episode, we discuss why this is ludicrous and why we should be normalising the topic, helping mums of neurodiverse children feel more supported and also feel more comfortable getting tested themselves.
