She Doesn't Settle Podcast

Kuri sits down with Kelly Travis of She Doesn't Settle Podcast to discuss her early experiences in the U.S., her career and how it changed when she left for maternity leave. Kuri goes on to reveal that she never returned to her job after having her children, especially after finding out her son was on the spectrum. She also shares how she struggles as a parent seeing her kids battle with things other children might deem common sense, and how difficult it is for her to find activities or sports that she feels comfortable leaving her son at.  This conversation is a vitally important one, filled with insights that we all really need to hear and take to heart.

Mindful Return September Book Talk: Autism with a Side of Sushi

Do you know a parent whose child has autism?  If so, you may be curious to know more about autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  You may wonder how you can act in ways that are inclusive, both to the child’s parents and to the child who has autism.  Or perhaps you have a child with autism yourself.  In this case, perhaps some of what our guest author shares today will resonate with you.

Kuri Yasuno Author of Autism with a Side of Sushi on Living The Next Chapter

An immigrant from Japan at five years old, Kuri Yasuno arrived on Long Island, NY with her older brother and parents. After graduating Georgetown University, Kuri followed her love of creativity and worked in Marketing and Website Production at the Discovery Health Channel and the National Geographic Channel.

 

With the birth of her children, Kuri switched gears to be a stay at home mom, caring for her now, two teenage boys. ​When her older son was diagnosed with being on the autism spectrum, Kuri took her creative spirit and her positive mindset to focus on his education and social skills development.

 

Kuri is writing this book to share her experiences as a mom of a special-needs child with humorous anecdotes and honest introspection. Her hope is for her story to inspire awareness, understanding, inclusion and especially kindness.
