for school districts: support your families of neurodivergent children

Neurodivergent is a term used to describe children and teens whose brains develop or work differently. It's a non-medical umbrella term, and can include children with diagnoses of ADHD, Autism,  and Learning Disabilities. It can also include children who are not diagnosed but have emotional regulation, social communication, anxiety, or executive functioning challenges.

This course is ideal for families of neurodivergent students, but also those who just need a little extra support! 

Each module is about 60 minutes to watch in total, with videos broken down into  20-25 minutes long segments. 

 All in all, the entire course  provides 12 clock hours of content. 

You will have up to a full year to watch all of the videos, so it’s totally doable with just 60 minutes a month!

You get access for one full year. Why not lifetime? Over the past few years, we’ve been taking data on course completion rates. When we give lifetime access, the completion rates are much lower than when there is a time limit. We want parents to not only invest in the course, but to firmly step into the path of investing the time to actually use it! Especially for folks who are experiencing stresst, it’s very easy to file watching the videos under “I’ll do it later when I have time.”

If the content is something you will want to revisit year after year, there will be an option to renew the course a significantly lower rate after a year has passed.

Thrive Hive TV Network provides 150+ short videos on many topics related to parenting and stress management.  Make It Stick Parenting is a higher touch course with access to a private forum, group coaching with Rebecca & Elizabeth, and is geared specifically for families of children with neurodivergent profiles to take a "deeper dive" into support. 

 You'll also be learning from Elizabeth and our guest experts so we're confident you'll hear lots of new-to-you-strategies!

When you sign up for Make It Stick Parenting, you will get a link to sign up for the quarterly coaching calls with Rebecca, Elizabeth, and your fellow Make It Stick Parenting community. 

On these calls, you can ask specific questions about the course and the strateiges, ask questions if you need support, and troubleshoot ways to overcome challenges your are facing with your child. 

If you can't make the call live, no worries! You can submit a question in advance and Rebecca and Elizabeth will answer it on the call. You will have access to the recording to watch at your convenience!
