If you’re a parent of a special needs child, can we take a moment to acknowledge you? Right here, right now… I want to shower you with love, strength and patience. And all things nourishing to replenish your spirit. Parenting is a LOT… and then you add in any of the four major types of special needs children, which includes physical, developmental, behavioral/emotional, and/or sensory impaired into the mix… well, it’s likely your household is on high alert and in high stress mode, 24/7.

But what about the parent? How do you take better care of yourself, so that you can be the best for your kids?

My special guest today is a wellness coach for special needs moms. She's also a mom of three young kids, one of which has Down Syndrome with Severe Speech Apraxia). She shares her real-world insight and we focus on simple, practical ways to nourish yourself through genuine self-care. I promise it won’t require a whole lot of effort, time or money. Keeping it simple.

Sinead Quinn simplifies how to parent a child with special needs.

In this episode, you will learn:
  • Why Sinead thinks the wellness industry makes things so (darn) complicated, especially for special needs parents
  • The shocking statistics for parents of special needs children who don’t look after themselves (why this is a BIG deal)
  • Three simple ways parents can begin to take better care of themselves in their everyday lives:
  • Breathwork
  • hydration
  • ask for help
  • How to give yourself a ‘wellness makeover’ in small (yet profound) practical ways
  • How friends and family can provide additional support to the family who has a special needs child (without pity or feeling like you’re being pushy)
