Meet Mia, our “mom extraordinaire.” Mia shares her experiences successfully parenting a child with learning disabilities. Mia beautifully tells her story of navigating the challenges of school, homeschooling, medication, and social pressures. The conversation touches on fears parents face when first dealing with a diagnosis, how to stay calm while still expressing emotions, and how to move towards acceptance of a situation that may not be what we envisioned.
Mia talks about the ups and downs and the pivotal moment she realized her son will be alright. And why she believes building a team or community to support a child helps avoid feelings of isolation.
