Lindsey Rowe Parker is a mom on the tail end of toddler-hood and embracing the next phase of parenting while learning to navigate and advocate for her autistic daughter. With a recent adult diagnosis of ADHD, and a new deeper understanding of her own sensory experiences, she has begun to delve into the neruodiversity community learning all she can from neurodiverse voices.
“Wiggles, Stomps, and Squeezes Calm My Jitters Down” is her first picture book, and she hopes it connects with everyone who has felt the need for a wiggle, stomp, or squeeze!
