The Behavior Revolution

Penny Williams & Sarah Wayland created The Behavior Revolution with the goal of celebrating and supporting neurodiverse families through brain science-backed insights, strategies, compassion, and guidance.

The Behavior Revolution provides online parent training that will help you empower your child for success. 

  • Expert Interviews: Since 2018, Penny Williams and I have interviewed over 125 of the world’s experts on autism, ADHD, and parenting as part of the Parenting Autism and Parenting ADHD Summits. Our experts share insights on the neurological basis for behavior, the impact of sensory struggles, effective symptom management, coping with emotional intensity, transitioning after high school, empowering your child for success, and more.
  • The Parenting Collaborative: An online community of parents of neurodiverse kids that meets on Zoom twice a month.
  • Online Courses for Parents: Sarah Wayland’s class, First Put On Your Own Oxygen Mask (see below), will be available in early 2021.

First Put on Your Own Oxygen Mask

The workshop is for parents who want to improve their quality of life and their relationship with their children. To quote Brianna Wiest, “True self-care is not salt baths and chocolate cake, it is making the choice to build a life you don’t need to regularly escape from.” This class will help you start the process of building a life that sustains you, even when things are hard.

In this eight-session workshop you will learn new ways to think about your problems and how to implement self-care strategies proven to reduce stress, even when life is incredibly busy. In addition to learning more about yourself, you will learn skills taught in cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy, as well as mindfulness–based stress reduction.

Because of COVID-19 and quarantining, I am creating an online version of this class that will be posted in the Online Course section of The Behavior Revolution in early 2021.
