Raising differently-wired children can feel, well, lonely.
All the other moms you know seem to have it all together.
They have kids who sit still during church.
They don’t dread phone calls over a child’s behavior.
They get a full night’s sleep because their kids go to bed at a decent hour and actually sleep all night.
And you feel like the minute you bring any of this up — your differences, your struggles, your worries and fears — someone’s going to recommend a book or a strategy or a “just change his diet”.
If only it were that simple, you think.
I know what it’s like.
I know the fear and anxiety and frustration you feel because I’ve been there. We have three twice exceptional children, teen to elementary, and their diagnoses include Autism, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and (potentially) ADHD.
We’ve tossed overstimulated, melting-down nine-year-olds over our shoulders, ignoring whispers as we scurry out.
We’ve worked through evaluations, therapies, IEP meetings, and the like.
We’ve felt out of place and awkward and felt just so defeated.
But we’ve survived — and thrived — and you are not alone in this journey.
I’d love to have the opportunity to support you through one-on-one consulting.
During a coaching session, we’ll tackle what’s weighing on your heart. We can
- pray together
- troubleshoot behavioral concerns
- discuss educational options (homeschool and traditional schooling)
- review therapeutic decisions
- talk about and prepare for the evaluation process
- prep for IEP meetings
- develop strategies for helping your kids thrive
- work through one of my self-paced courses
You’d be surprised how much coaching can ease your mind, especially with someone who has walked a similar path.
I look forward to chatting with you.
