Discover 5 Strategies to Reduce Stress & Overwhelm while Raising Autistic Children

Unburdened; Finding Balance Living Alongside Autism


Do you find yourself stuck wishing, hoping, and dreaming your life was different?  

This wasn't what you expected motherhood to be, and that's ok.  None of us planned for this unique parenting journey but you are not broken, and your family is not damaged.  Learn to change your inner dialogue and the story you share with others about how hard your life is.  Instead, create an intentional life while letting go of always feeling overwhelmed and disappointed with your life and yourself. 

Do you feel like you are never doing enough or constantly failing? Have you left a school meeting more frustrated and confused than when you got there?  You are not alone.

There is a lot to learn and understand in Special Education. Imagine knowing that your child is receiving the services and accommodations they need to be successful while working toward the goal of independence?  Do you dream of walking into an IEP meeting with confidence and truly understanding everything that is talked about?  You can and should. 

Have you become your LAST priority? Does everyone else come before you?  

Have you stopped taking care of yourself because you are so focused on your child and the needs of your family?  If you don't take care of yourself and your emotional well-being,  you can't be the parent you need to be.  Stop doubting your parenting and gain confidence and belief in yourself without worrying about judgment.  Caregiver burnout is a real thing.  I don't want you to get there.  

A Note From Shannon...

As a coach and mentor, I am looking in my rearview mirror at where you are today.  I know all too well the worry and uncertainty that comes along with raising an autistic child.  I spent years feeling like I was failing.  I had many days when I really didn't think I was cut out for this and questioned how I would do it again tomorrow, yet, here I am. 

My son Jordan was diagnosed with autism over 20 years ago and that diagnosis changed the trajectory of our lives.  I went through years feeling lost and confused and had no one to turn to who understood what it was like parenting an autistic child. 

In this FREE course, I share with you the tools that changed my life and show you how even moms who never thought they could are showing up better every day from what I am teaching them and you can too.
