Your child has ADHD. Or autism. The diagnosis isn’t a death sentence, but you probably have some questions:
What is an invisible disability?
Who's fault is this?
What are the range of challenges facing my child?
Do you feel uncertain?
Do you avoid certain people because they make you feel like a bad parent?
Do you dread emails from you child's teacher because they say all sorts of things about your child that you don't understand?
Does your child's doctor toss around terms like ASD or hyperactivity without explaining what that means?
Maybe you can just try harder.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results.
STOP. JUST STOP.

Some families have children that are different.
Actually, every child had difficult days. Even children in perfect families.
(Here’s the secret – there are no perfect families).
Having a child with ADHD or autism brings challenges to your home and to your child’s school experience.
Autism and ADHD are known as invisible disabilities.
A child with autism has no outward sign of his disability.
A child with ADHD looks just like every other child.
Yet children with autism or ADHD can act different than the other children. And this can cause confusion, frustration, and even anger in the adults around the child.
Here is what our expert Crystal has to say about taking a child with autism out in public.
Exploring Invisible Disabilities: ADHD & Autism is our short online video course geared to helping parents understand these two common invisible disabilities.
Two experts in education as well as ADHD and autism provide an understanding of both disabilities in a short video course. Only $24 will bring you to a peace of mind and understanding about your child and their disability.
Understanding invisible disabilities helps.

Moms do make mistakes.
We look at this photo, and think,
What was she thinking???
But stop it. You know you’ve done something like that.
Like taking your timid child to the shark exhibit.
Like making your kid go to school when they were sick.
Like making your teen die of embarrassment just because a good song comes on.
Apart from making sure that they are safe, and have enough to eat and wear, a mother will face a thousand and one little challenges while trying to raise her kids right.
Challenges that outsiders do not see.
I see a perfect family.
I also see
the struggle to find everyone’s shoes
the argument with the daughter who only wears princess dresses
the child who is distracted by the lights
the struggle to get teeth brushed and hair combed
the meltdown about to happen
and the teen who is dying of embarrassment
Quirky characteristics can be hidden from the outside world. Your spouse who collects Russian space pins. Your teen who is obsessed with Legos. Your child who will only eat orange foods. Your kid who is always fidgeting.
It can be difficult. It can seem like you are all alone.
You are not alone. You are valuable to your family. You are doing a good job. You care.
Just know that none of us are right all the time…
Have you ever entered a room, and felt that something was off?
Did someone leave you a surprise?
Or did someone rearrange something?
Some people like to have things just so, and know it if you’ve made a change.
Have you ever shared a photo, and then realized something was off?
Maybe there was something awkward in the background. Maybe someone photo bombed you.
Maybe something happened that you didn’t expect.
We can get upset. Or fussy. Or, we can choose be grateful. And choose to laugh, even if we know we will be the one to clean up.
We can simply appreciate that sometimes we are a little ‘off’ ourselves.
We hope you had a nice, spill-free Mother’s Day!
Lists can help a child manage tasks. Here are some tips for success!

Some people just can’t keep their opinions to themselves.
When you are out in public with your child, and your child throws a tantrum, everyone is suddenly an expert. Really, they are a critic.
It can be worse when you child has an invisible disability such as autism or ADHD.
Our expert Crystal says
As a parent you are always thinking, “What are people thinking when my child tantrums?” Because they are going to tantrum about something.
Watch this 1 minute 44 second video where Crystal explains what it is like for parents when their child has a meltdown in public.
Our experts Crystal and Cindi want to help you with your child’s journey through autism or ADHD.

Marriage can be strained by a child with disabilities.
When a child is struggling, parents struggle, too.
What is the best way to help our child?
Who is right?
Why is the teacher always calling me at work?
Sometimes, we blame ourselves.
Sometimes, we blame each other.
It is even worse when the school professionals are telling you stuff about your child that you disagree with.
Watch our expert Cindi explain your rights as a parent in this 50 second video.
