SESSION 1: Debbie Reber | Raising Your Differently Wired Child

Talk Description, Speaker Bio, and Resources

Parenting a 2e kid is a long game and often a journey of acceptance. Debbie provides a valuable roadmap in this process by sharing three valuable “tilts,” which are transformative mindshifts that help us bridge the painful disconnects between expectations and reality:

  • Stop fighting who your child is and lean in - how to see your child as a “whole” being and meet and support them where they are
  • Let your child be on their own timetable - they are not broken! How to work with your own insecurities about your child’s unique timeline.
  • Practice relentless self care - how to get beyond the guilt and understand the value of self care in as little as 10 minutes a day
