Coaching supports you through your family’s change process. The process of moving from where you are [dominant story] to where you want to be [preferred story]. Each family reclaims their family’s health and freedom in different styles. However, no matter the style, the process needs to involve preparing and planning the implementation of lifestyle modifications based on your current ability. Plus, identifying the character strengths and sources of inspiration you will rely on during times of backlash. Healing is not a continuous forward journey but more like the ocean’s tide. Building a plan based on your desires, ability, strengths, and previous successes are cornerstones of empowerment. Overwhelm is only an indicator you are trying to do too much too soon.

Kara feels Autism Recovery is misleading. It appears to insinuate there is a finish line. Recovery can quickly become an elusive carrot that seems to become more and more out of reach with each passing year. She believes Autism remission is much more appropriate.
