Reframing Personal Mindset on Neurodiversity

Raising a child with different needs presents unique developmental challenges that may differ from those experienced by typically developing children. These challenges could involve delays in speech and language, motor skills, social interactions, or cognitive development. As parents navigate these individualized needs, they often embark on an emotional rollercoaster. While there are moments of joy and pride in their child's progress, there may also be moments of frustration, sadness, and even guilt during difficult times. Balancing these emotions while providing unwavering support requires resilience and coping strategies.

Supporting Your Neurodivergent Child

The challenges a child with an autism or ADHD diagnosis often differ from those without a neurodivergent brain. Special needs children might struggle with behavioral and emotional regulation, which can impact their learning environment and the overall family dynamics. Parents may face difficulties in managing behavioral outbursts, tantrums, or sensory sensitivities, leading to feelings of frustration, stress, and uncertainty about the best approach to support their child's learning and emotional well-being. Let us help you identify ways to best support your child’s educational needs. We believe all children can learn when we teach the way they learn.

Parental Support

Parents need a safe space to process ideas and emotions or even just vent. We are here to listen. Do you need someone to hear you out while you weigh options for your child’s care/education? Do you want to talk to someone that understands the challenges of raising a neurodivergent child? We are here to listen!

Parental coaching offers personalized support and guidance tailored to the unique needs of the family and the different needs child. Partnering with a coach can provide insights and strategies specifically designed to address the challenges the parents and child face.

Parent/Teacher Communication

We can help with a list of guiding questions to ensure you get the most out of a parent-teacher conference. We can even help you generate a clear and effective email to address concerns. 

Help Determine if Your Child Needs a Special Education Assessment

Feeling fear, confusion, or frustration that your child may need special education is natural. We can help you understand that difference between a learning disability and skill deficit and the difference between an IEP and 504.

LGBTQ+ Consulting

While this category may not fall under exceptional needs, it is a sensitive topic for many families. We would be more than happy to answer questions, listen to your concerns, and help you be the supportive, loving, and accepting parent your child needs.
