I know what it's like to have a child who...
- goes from 0 to 60 in .005 seconds
- gets stuck in rigid routines
- seems anxious and disorganized
- has sensory challenges
- has trouble seeing other points of view
- is easily distracted & angered in a flash
- is smart, creative, and highly empathetic
I also know what it is like to BE that child.
Confused, stressed, overwhelmed, and feeling disrespected is how I spent much of my childhood. Angering others seemed to be my specialty but I had no skills to change, even though I "knew better."
My parents didn't know what to do.
As an adult, I learned that along with having sensory processing challenges, I was also on the Autism Spectrum (Aspergers). It was then that my mission to help parents understand their children became even more clear.
My childhood experience, insight, and sensitivity are what allow me to walk in your shoes and understand your reality. And, since I also seem to be raising a daughter just like me, I can help you decode those behaviors that seem unreasonable, persistent or defiant.
My goal is to empower you with the tools you need to communicate respectfully and create peace in your home.
You can help your children develop the skills they need to reach their full potential and thrive - if you focus on the three key areas of support which I discuss in my BRAND NEW series.
If you are a parent, teacher, or caregiver who...
- Walks on eggshells trying not to set-off your highly-sensitive child.
- Worries about the meltdowns which end with your child in a puddle of incoherent tears.
- is concerned that your child is purposefully defying you.
- is determined not to let your child run the show in your home.
- wants to reach a child who seems disinterested, unmotivated or distant.
- wants to commit to strengthening your relationship, soothing stress, and building your child's skills.
or if your child...
- is consistently inflexible.
- seems to overreact to small changes
- appears more connected to devices than people.
- is unable to self-regulate or control their impulses
- wakes up and never stops moving
- is socially awkward or unable to relate to peers
- has trouble maintaining focus, completing tasks or following directions.
- looks for help - even in situations where independence is expected.
