Why are our high needs kids struggling even more during these times? The new data confirms without a doubt that these are high stress times for our society. For our kids, the sadness that they are experiencing from increased isolation, added losses, and lack of certainty have resulted in overwhelmed emotions. What does this look like? For each child it’s different, but a few common themes look like anger, resistance, lack of energy, boredom, frustration, or just numbing out. In a word, many of our high needs kids have joined the increasing ranks of our population who are experiencing symptoms of depression during the pandemic. Is there anything we can do as parents to support our kids through this time? Laura Beth DeHority, LMFT, parent to high needs young adults, and former corporate communicator will join with us during this session to help us establish practical skills to make a more supportive environment for our kids on their journey through these challenging and uncertain times.
