Course contents

100% satisfaction rate from current students!

Raising a child with a different wiring in his/her brain than your own can be a tiring and sometimes a very frustrating process which makes you wonder if you are good enough to take up this challenge.

Well, this course is designed to prove to yourself that you are even better! It contains 16 short lectures which cover the main challenges - confusion, anger, guilt, exhaustion, loneliness- neurotypical parents usually face when raising their aspie(s) and how to overcome these by doing simple exercises every day.

The exercises are derived from my 20 yrs experience in people development, coaching, NLP and meditation which I have used with my clients and my own self-discovering journey of being a parent.

Parenting is an on-going process; so this course will be updated with any new insights/information/exercises as time passes by.
