About the event
“If you are a parent of a twice-exceptional child, I see you. I know you are tired. I know you feel undervalued and overworked. I know you sometimes feel like you’re doing everything wrong. But I also want you to know that you are amazing. But, it’s not always easy to recognize that. And it’s not always easy to trust your own voice when you know what’s best for your twice-exceptional child.” Dr. Tasha Oswald
In the face of challenging behaviors, rising societal and educational expectations, and fear about an uncertain future, it is difficult to have constant reminders of the way our child doesn’t fit on the path everyone around us seems to be taking. It is difficult not to parent out of fear and we may push our children in a direction that is advised to us, rather than listening to our own inner voice and helping them find their own unique path. Join Dr. Tasha Oswald, licensed psychologist and founder/director of Open Doors Therapy, to learn how to not only accept, but celebrate, the child you have. Learn to frame your child’s behaviors in a new light of self protection. Explore ways to minimize your own inner critic, the importance of caring for yourself, and the need to celebrate all that you do. Dr. Oswald will leave you with hope, peace, acceptance, empowerment and celebration—for yourself and your child.
