Free Webinar Replay: Accepting Your Child’s Diagnosis: Transform Your Mindset, Thoughts, and Actions
In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn tips for supporting neurodiverse children with Deborah Reber.
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.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- How to process your child’s diagnosis in a way that honors and supports your emotional experience (even if the diagnosis happened years ago)
- Ways to see your child through a lens of strengths rather than deficits
- How to parent from a place of possibility instead of fear
- The importance of helping your child embrace self-discovery and self-knowledge
- How to help kids learn more about who they are rather than punishing or pointing out differences
- Best strategies for shifting your mindset, thoughts, and actions, to full embrace who your child is
The slides include Reflection Questions to help parents accept their children’s diagnosis, allow time to mourn, learn to see their child through a strength-based lens, and transform fears about their child’s future into positive focus on the future.
