Parenting is always challenging, but special needs parenting adds another layer of complexity to the job of managing work and life. In this week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds, Sarah interviews Alyce Thompson, one half of a two-lawyer couple, about how she makes it work.
Alyce talks about how she and her spouse share childcare duties, and how they stay emotionally connected while raising a daughter with Dravet Syndrome, a genetic form of epilepsy. Sarah and I have long appreciated Alyce’s thoughtful comments on The SHU box blog and here so we were thrilled she was willing to be interviewed!
In the Q&A section we discuss ideas for a scientist who’s been granted $2000 in personal/professional development funds. What would you spend the money on?
