Compassionately parenting & embracing neurodiversity one baby step at a time.
Hi, I’m Diana.
My interest is psychology and the role of compassion on the mental health and well-being of those raising children with chronic conditions, developmentally and medically. Returning to academia I seek the answer to a question uttered after my first child’s diagnosis “how do I become the parent my child needs me to be?” A question I still ask myself as they grow and needs change. Being a neurodiverse parent raising a neurodiverse family I have had to become a “Jill of all trades”. Unofficial therapist/problem solver, first aid responder, negotiator, PhD candidate, research assistant, data analyst, designer, & programmer. My work experience covers everything from house cleaner to small business owner and manufacturer, give me a problem to solve and I am in my element. Consequently, I can draw on diverse skills and abilities as I seek to deepen our understanding of parenting and raising children with chronic conditions.
