Thriving in the Midst of Chaos: Parenting With Special Needs Kids

Oct 16, 2019

Episode 2. Going Down the Doctor Rabbit Hole

In this episode, we discuss the totally different experiences we had noticing things were atypical with each of our kids and what the push was to take the leap and get them evaluated. We reflect on how stressful the wait was before they were able to obtain an evaluation, and how difficult it was not only to cope, but to find the time, money, and energy to even try to cope with this waiting period. We also discuss how going to one doctor might send you down a rabbit hole of then going to see many different doctors and getting many different evaluations, some of which are accurate, others of which are totally wrong.
