One in six families in the United States have a child who has been diagnosed with neurodiversity (special needs). No matter the developmental disability, the lives of these families are likely to be affected. Parents of children with neurodiversity (special needs) may experience relationship distress. A family’s financial situations can also change dramatically. Relationships with siblings, relatives, and friends of the child can become strained as the focus shifts to the child who has neurodiversity (special needs). Often parents lose track of their personal goals as they commit their lives to caring for a child with neurodiversity (special needs).
A life coach can help parents, supporters, and families set goals to take care of themselves while taking care of their loved one. When the parents, supporters, and families constantly put their needs last, they might feel alone, depleted, unsupported, judged, confused, angry, and guilty. A coach can help you identify your goals, create practical steps needed to achieve your goals, guide you through obstacles, and help you make decisions. Together we can solve problems, create action plans, and find ways to manage stress, fear, anxiety, grief, and loneliness. Our life coach is here to support you on your unique journey and help you put your best foot forward while raising your child. She knows the challenges of judgement and loneliness parents of children with neurodiversity (special needs) can face because of her 21 years of experience in working with these children and their families.
