SEASON 2 – EPISODE 10: HOW TO ADVOCATE FOR YOUR CHILD WITH ADDITIONAL NEEDS WITH SONYA REYNOLDS

Listen on iTunes Listen on LiSTNR

I recently sat down with The Wellness Collective Podcast host Nat Kringoudis for a heart-to-heart chat about advocating for our children based on my experience in the treatment of my daughter’s epilepsy.

In this podcast we discuss;

  • How to let go of the expectation that your child was destined to be born happy and healthy when they aren’t necessarily born this way
  • Why it is so important for the family to be involved in all aspects so that it doesn’t impact the entire family in a negative way
  • The grieving process even though the child isn’t gone
  • How the mother instinct kicks in and just how fierce she can be
  • How the diagnosis impacts other family members who aren’t immediate family
  • Just how important nutrition is for a child with additional needs
  • How to be courageous and speak up, go against the grain but follow your intuition
