Nari Weaver is an entrepreneur from Venezuela, currently living in Seattle, WA. She is Founder and CEO of an educational platform for the Hispanic community called VIGOR. Aside of being a successful entrepreneur, Nari is a mother of 2 young boys, one with Autism, and the other has General Anxiety Disorder & OCD. She will be sharing a story about her oldest son.
Imagine this story: An adult says “I have anxiety”, everyone is ok with it… Or if you have a child with special needs people are empathetic and even helpful about any situation…But what happens when you try to explain that your child has anxiety and on top of that disruptive behavior? ALL EYES ROLL BECAUSE NO BODY TAKES IT SERIOUSLY! In this talk I would love to walk you guys through the magic of early intervention, and how my son managed to control his behaviors to a point that we can “pretend that this never happened.”
