Mom spotlight with Jasmine Poole

The Autism in Black Podcast is hosted by Maria Davis-Pierre, LMHC and focuses on all things autism and the black parent experience. Our goal is to educate, support, and empower black parents to advocate not only for their children but themselves as well. This episode is a mom spotlight where we have conversations with moms who are doing great things in the autism parenting community. Today we are joined by Jasmine Poole, who is a registered neurosurgery nurse. Jasmine talks with us about her autism parent journey with her son. She talks about how she navigated through some of the challenging times and how she keeps a positive mindset. She goes on to talk about what inspired her to start the Maurice Rush Foundation and the Au-Parents need group, which is a virtual support group where  parents can join regardless of their residence.   Resources mentioned Instagram: @mrushfoundation Facebook: @mrushfoundation Twitter: @mrushfoundation Website: Rece wants cereal book: The official hashtag for the podcast is #aibpod  You can find us on twitter @autisminblack Instagram @autisminblack Facebook @autisminblk Join the Autism in Black Podcast Community – here For more information and other valuable resources, make sure to visit the website at
