Diffability: the podcast helping break down barriers for families with disabled children

The Atwal-Brice Family

Season 2 of the incredible Diffability podcast, hosted by Dadsnet, has launched and we are thrilled to be a part of it!

The podcast is led by dads Paul & Michael Atwal-Brice and follows their challenging journey of raising their identical twin teenage sons Levi and Lucas, who both have autism and epilepsy, as well as their identical toddler twins, Lance and Lotan. The podcast covers a wide range of topics and features special guests to help others understand more about children’s ‘diffabilities’.

“Get Cycling is so proud to play a small part in helping the Diffability podcast spread its important message to families across the world. The work they are doing ties in so well with our core mission to make everyday activities, like cycling, as accessible as possible, to everyone.”

Joanne Mahon, CEO at Get Cycling

The Atwal-Brice Family

Michael Atwal-Brice, host of the Diffability podcast, emphasised the importance of this season for parents and carers of children with additional needs or disabilities.

This season of Diffability is vitally important for parents and carers of children who have additional needs or are disabled. With help and advice directly from families who are living and breathing so many different and diverse conditions, to professionals from a host of different charities and organisations who help and support families directly.

We will discuss the highs and lows of parenting children with a variety of needs. As parents to children who are disabled, we know full well how difficult times can be, and equally how great times can be.

After all, we’re all in this together!

“We feel like this is such an important podcast for our community, and wider afield – every day families are being given diagnoses that will rock their world, and this podcast helps let them know that they aren’t alone on their journey, from tips and advice from experts on various conditions to resources and places to turn for support. At Dadsnet we are very proud to be able to make this podcast and help families of all shapes and sizes feel less alone.”

Jack Allen, Head of Content for Dadsnet

This is something we are incredibly proud of – highlighting the work we do and the need for the spotlight to be on a community we are involved with. The struggles of families with children with disabilities are so often overlooked and we were so happy to be able to help celebrate and champion all the hard work they do.

Whether your child’s Diffability is anxiety, mental health, ASD, ADHD, or any other kind of diagnosis, this podcast aims to help parents feel less alone. Tune in here:
