Your child is wired differently. When you first learn this, you can’t anticipate the strange and different path your life will follow. Embracing and supporting every aspect of your child, including his or her neuro-differences, is complicated work. It is also important and fulfilling beyond your imagination.
Between the difficulties our kids face in school, to the challenges we face daily at home, to the mental and emotional hurdles we must vault while trying to allay concerns about future unknowns, parents raising atypical, neurodiverse kids often experience periods of sadness, isolation, and overwhelm. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can parent your child from a place of confidence, joy, and possibility.
- “Excellent! So important to shift our thinking and focus on strengths. Loved the term “compassionately educate”; as a school psychologist, I will use this term to help my colleagues grow and develop their skill sets for working with neurodiversity!”
- “Fantastic speaker with practical to-do’s for parents!”
