Hi, My name is Hillarie. I’m a marketer and small business coach by trade, but am also a wife, mom and step mom to 5 boys! And one of those boys, Lincoln, has Down Syndrome. Before the pandemic hit, life with Lincoln was tough, but now with the taking away of his normal routines, therapies and school it has become more overwhelming than normal.
How am I supposed to help him reach his IEP goals? I’m not a special education teacher. I’m not a speech or occupational therapist. He has an amazing team who help him with all of these things, and now they’re gone. So what now? How do I support my son?
I have been left feeling ashamed, embarrassed, like no one understands and pretty helpless. But I realized, I can’t be the only special needs caregiver out there dealing with these feelings. So I’ve decided to put together a community to provide resources for other special needs caregiver during this time.

Weekly Caregiver Zoom Calls
These calls will be just for us, the caregivers. An open forum to talk about what we are struggling with, what’s working, what’s not working, but ultimately a place where we don’t feel alone.
