Reducing Parent Stress and Anxiety: Emphasizing Strengths Over Deficits – Special Needs Kids Deserve Better

Go on the Internet or social media and you will literally find thousands of ideas for reducing parent stress and anxiety.

But like so many ideas, which make a lot of sense in theory, they don’t work in practice.

When was the last time you wanted to be fixed?

Strength-based education (SBE) is a simple, yet powerful, approach to parenting.

When special needs kids are valued for their strengths great things happen.

Based on brain research and common sense, SBE builds on the talents and what kids are doing well and their success.

Focusing on deficits or problems views kids as something to be fixed or broken.

Bottom line is that our special needs kids deserve better.
