There’s nothing like navigating through Covid with a Special Needs child.
You’ve arranged and then, rearranged therapies. You did this with no complaints.
You scheduled teletherapy appointments, became a therapist overnight.
In reality, to add another person in the house would be too much of a risk for your child whose immune system is already compromised.
Or perhaps, there weren’t any therapists comfortable coming into the home.
There’s so much more going on in your world than the average parent.
To add stress on top of an already stressful situation, you need to schedule for an ADOS eval.
Whew, talk about being like the energizer bunny. You just keep goin’ and goin’.
3 months later, you’re here and are still rocking your role as a Special Needs parent and fill in ‘therapist’.
What About Your Special Needs?
Take a breath. Start slow and address your special needs.
I am so grateful for the ways in which you all push me to be there for you.
I can only imagine how overwhelming and isolating these last 3 months have been for you and your child.
You have done everything to ensure that your child doesn’t experience regression all while keeping them healthy.
Can you say that you’ve paid as close attention to your needs as you have theirs?
Address Your Special Needs.
If you are a parent that knows that there are changes to be made, take a baby step and complete the SCAT form.
It’s down at the bottom of every blog post. It stands for Self-Care Assessment Test.
Take it and see what area of self-care you need to work on.
Then show up and spend time working on it.
If you feel like you need another set of eyes to help you jump start your self-care journey, I invite you to schedule a call with me.
