Some days, loving a child from a hard place is so challenging. The things they do seem crazy and illogical. It is difficult to understand what motivates them. Why do they do the things that they do? Why do they reject attempts to connect? How do we make sense of the alphabet soup diagnoses that label them? Why do we as parents and professionals feel crazy in dealing with all that they bring to the table? Understanding the minds of the children we are caring for is challenging on so many levels. This hour will seek to provide a foundation for understanding the way they view the world and will help to make sense of their world views.
