Parenting children who are neurodivergent, and have special needs and/or a chronic illness

Course Summary

You are not alone in your journey

Break free from feeling unheard, unsupported and overwhelmed and shift into your power.  You were a person before you became a parent, remember her?  This mini program will help you organize, delegate, plan and give yourself the compassion and love you give to your child.

If you are ready to make a change this program will help you get there!

Change can be hard,
but you're worth it!

You are already doing great things.  When your children need more we tend to feel it has to come from us.  The overwhelm can take over and then we forget to anything but be a caregiver.  

What Will You Learn?

BUILD RESILEINCY: Resiliency can be taught, I will show you how and what steps to take.

PROVIDING REASURANCE AND COMPASSION: As your children grow, they will ask questions, they may start to notice they have different needs or can't do what other children do.  This can be a hard journey to go on with your child.  As a child life specialist this is my specialty! Education is key to empowerment. 

What you will learn

Build your team and go from being unheard to heard.

Your children may love each other but they may not understand each other.  Build connection and compassion between siblings.

Your caregiver role is an important one.  Your child/teen needs you, but you can't do it all.  Before you became a parent you were a person, remember her? Self-care, self-compassion and time management will help you transition from burnout to self-love and fulfillment on your terms.
