From Burnout to
A 12 week private coaching program of Self-care for Special Needs Parents
The unforeseen challenges of raising a child with special needs is undeniably one of the most emotional rollercoasters a human could go through. Moms and Dads with Special Needs Children find very little guidance. Perhaps, there’s family support, nearby camps, sensory clinics and other social activities, but you realize there’s very little support for you, the special needs parent.
There’s so much stress in seeing the life you once lived, gone behind you like looking in a rearview mirror. You ask yourself how do you balance being there for yourself and your child. I have witnessed moms and dads with special needs children experience debilitating anxiety, overwhelming fatigue, weight gain or loss, hair loss, habitual migraines, heart problems, and other physical ailments within the last 10 years.
Most parents pay no attention to correcting this until their health forces them to. I’ve held many conversations with parents about this and they often ask, “Who is going to take care of my child if I’m not able to?” The child you take care of is your whole world. Your life hasn’t been the same. You’ve completely rearranged your life to ensure your special needs child receives the best life ever. Yet, there is still insurmountable stress. Other mom’s and dad’s don’t get it. There is so much stress in just reading that.
While other parents have their morning routine down to a science, you are praying that your child doesn’t throw a tantrum putting on his or her shoes while not hitting you in the process. With no clear roadmaps or instructions, you are wondering what you can do to ease the stress so that showing up doesn’t feel so weighty and out of reach.
I am here to teach you to live differently. To not ignore the nudge to take care of yourself.
This Program is for you if...
–You are the parent of a special needs child.
-You’re burnt out in more than one area of your life.
-You’re aware that you need to incorporate Self-Care into your life on a consistent basis but you’re not sure where to begin.
– You’re tired of putting you on the backburner and realize your family needs you at your best.
-You need accountability and are desperate to transform your wellbeing into a healthier, refreshed version of yourself for your family.
-You day dream doing something for yourself. But you sit with guilt right before you take the leap to commit to that thing or activity.
This is your dedication to yourself. When guilt creeps in, say to yourself, "self-care is non-negotiable." The most important time in the world is the time you make for yourself.
- Twelve 1:1 Coaching Sessions via phone or video conference.
- One 90 minute initial session to determine type of self care activity, motivators to use, and completed assessments.
- Eleven 45 minute weekly coaching sessions.
- After our initial 90 minute session, a custom deliverable self care plan will be sent to you 5-7 days later. (I take pride in writing individualized plans that are tailored to you and no one else).
Scratch Made uses a simple and easy to follow framework called the SEMPLE Method: Social, Emotional, Mental, Physical = Lists Everything! Beginning with the first week, we separately address each self-care domain and spend 3 weeks utilizing self-care practices as it pertains to the prescribed goal.
A unique 3 Tier Reward Program that serves as behavior motivation. Rewards are delivered as you achieve each Self-Care goal. The more goals mastered, the greater in value the reward. We believe healthy behaviors stick around when rewards are given to you after, not before achieving a goal.
Full Access via Email: I realize things come up between sessions. You are always encouraged to send me an email with the expectation that I will get back to you within 24 hours.
Full Access to our Paid Clients Facebook group: which will give you access to live videos, free workshops, giveaways, a central community with other SNP’s and support from the Scratch Made team.
Self-Care Coaching Program
“Motherhood is about raising and celebrating the child you have, not the child you thought you would have. It’s about understanding that he is exactly the person he is supposed to be and that, if you’re lucky, he just might be the teacher who turns you into the person you are supposed to be.
– Joan Ryan”

The 3 Tier Reward Program
As you work through the program and hit your goals, rewards are provided. We do this because we want you to know that we see the hard work you are doing by sticking to your self-care plan.
Get this: For every goal you achieve, your coach will reward you with something we know you love!
You start at the top and work your way down. The more goals you achieve, the more valuable the reward.
Burnout to Breakout is a 1:1, 12 week online program. It involves 12 scheduled check ins, with the first week check involving completion of questionnaires, behavioral interviewing, a determination of tangible motivators and an overview of what information is needed in the Self-Care Plan. You read that correctly! A Self -Care plan is generated to promote an individualized approach that reflects your goals, an overview of how we will work together and a measurable approach to track your goals.
Applied Behavior Analysis is a science-based, systematic approach that focuses on improving specific behaviors. It’s widely used method also known as, positive reinforcement is the reason why behavior occurs.
This is the most meaningful part of coaching my clients. It’s how those habitual behaviors that are impactful, last. Self-Care is all about creating healthy habits by sticking to a consistent plan that enhances your wellbeing. We take a look at the behaviors that are not serving you anymore (often, unhealthy and undesirable ones) and use embedded reward systems to ensure your efforts don’t go unnoticed. Did I mention that providing reinforcement to my clients is not only fun, but it’s major.
At this time, Scratch Made Consulting sole focus is serving our Special Needs community. Specifically, parents (Mom’s & Dad’s) with Special Needs children. I have worked tirelessly serving the Special Needs community for over 10 years. My focus now is serving the other half of the client, parents.

At this time, we are serving parents online, meeting them weekly by phone or video conferencing.
If you are a SNP that wants to take action so that you can show up for your family in a major way, then you are where you need to be. Self-Care is so countercultural, you’re supposed to be busy and take care of your family but then the most important person, ‘ You’ becomes an afterthought. If you are sick of tired of accepting that your self-care days are permanently left behind you, then yes, this is the program for you. We realize that this is a neglected service for many SNP’s which is why we are solely offering it to the families who we view are in need of it the most.
You should expect to feel uncomfortable. You aren’t used to feeling like there’s something for you. Just like you showed up for your child, show up for yourself so that you can show up for your family.
It’s simple. Just take a look at the changes in your behavior. Look at the data. What are you seeing more of? You’ll be seeing improvement in an increased consistent, self care routine that reflects your hard work to what truly matters, ‘You’.
