Are you a mom feeling utterly drained, navigating the maze of raising a neurodivergent child without much success? I've been there. My own journey, raising a neurodivergent daughter, was filled with challenges and setbacks. But through my professional background and personal experience, I've gained invaluable expertise that transformed my approach. Now, I'm eager to share the strategies that led to my success, including raising my teen grandson with autism.
