A few weeks ago Lisa Copen, founder of Rest Ministries, a website for chronically ill adults, asked me to participate in her Invisible Illness Week Web Seminar. She wanted me to encourage chronically ill parents who have special needs kids. I felt a little funny addressing those parents since I don’t have a chronic illness. But since my dad was chronically ill, and my son had special needs, I said yes.
Invisible Illness Week Seminar
Lisa had an amazing variety of speakers during the seminar – from a teenager with chronic illness to marriage counselors, from tax accountants to dietitians and much more. You can go to InvisibleIllnessConference.com to browse through the seminars and listen to topics of interest.
How to Live Triumphantly with Special Needs Kids
My topic for the 50 minute seminar was How to Live Triumphantly with Special Needs Kids. If you read my posts regularly, the title will seem familiar since I adapted the talk so it would apply to all parents and ran the content as a three part series a few weeks ago. The three posts received many favorable comments when I listed it on the Different Dream for My Child Facebook fan page, so I thought I would attach the audio link for the session so you can listen in on it.

The only disappointing part of series has been the lack of additions to my nine ways to live triumphantly with special needs kids. If you’re a parent, you probably have a great idea that could help others. So please, leave your comments! I’d love to expand the series and feature your ideas!
