Let’s work together as system disruptors. Let’s change systems that aren’t serving your child and family, and impact change, starting from the bottom up. Together we will identify ways to increase your child’s sense of safety and security with a bottom up approach to caring for your child’s nervous system. We will trust what in your gut you already know about your child, that they’re doing their best. Using a PDA lens and strategies, we will embark on a path that allows you to stay connected and in relationship with your child. We will think together about supports, and what those in community with your family must know to successfully support you and your child. We will invite providers and educators to be disrupters with us- to disrupt what we thought was helpful but hasn’t been, to check our own biases and ableism, to provide opportunities for autonomy and child led learning, to redefine expectations rooted in compliance based systems, and to center safety, autonomy, and connectedness as a necessity.
