Self-Care Skills & Success Strategies for
Parents of Special Needs Children

As the mom of a two boys, one whom is on the Autism Spectrum I understand the daily challenges and stresses that impact families who are living within this unique situation.

The constant caring, routine, hyper vigilance, overwhelm, financial burden, isolation and sometimes lack of connection that can be part of  parenting a special child.

This book is a support to parents with self-care suggestions and gathered wisdom’s from myself and other parents that are walking a similar path and are thriving.

Finally – a book I can recommend to parents about the most important aspect of raising a special needs child – self-care! Kudos to Siobhan Wilcox for writing the book that we need to stay healthy and serene in the midst of all that being a parent of a special needs child entails.

Flight attendants tell you that in case of an emergency, you must take care of yourself before attending to your children. The same is true in real life. Thrive Now Blueprint  is a practical guide with strategies that are doable for parents who are time, energy and money- constrained. In Thrive Now Blueprint, Siobhan guides parents through short exercises that help parents create healthy self care habits that only take a few minutes at a time. Siobhan has taken her 16 years of experience as a Stress Management Expert and applied them to her needs as the mother of a child on the autism spectrum. I highly recommend this book for all parents of special needs children and those in the helping professions.” – Chantal Sicile-Kira, Founder of; author of five books including:
Autism Spectrum Disorder (revised): The Complete Guide to Understanding Autism.


Practicing self care is the greatest lesson I can model for our son and one of the most important gifts I can give him. The more I thrive and give to him from my overflow, the better parent I will be for him. Siobhan Wilcox’s book, Thrive Now Blueprint – Self-care & Success Strategies for Parents of Special Needs Children, guides parents down this road with compassion and valuable insights. An empowering and important read for all special needs parents.” – Kalli Holmes Sorensen – Mother of a son on the Autism Spectrum and the Founder of the Seaside Sisters – A Women’s Empowerment Ministry

Candid and caring, Siobhan Wilcox’s beautifully written book, Thrive Now Blueprint, will have you nodding your head in recognition, and feeling like you have just been welcomed into the safety and wisdom of her generous heart.  This is an indispensable guide for anyone involved with special-needs kids, and thank goodness it is here!” – Rabbi Wayne Dosick, PhD and Ellen Kaufman Dosick, MSWauthors of six books including Golden Rules – The Ten Ethical Values Parents Need to Teach Their Children & Empowering Your Indigo Child

As Siobhan Wilcox knows, parenting a child with additional needs is both a beautiful and a challenging experience. In the Thrive Now Blueprint she offers up wisdom from her professional and personal life to help parents find greater balance, relieve stress and live healthier lives. I would recommend the book to any parent in need of techniques for greater health and happiness, for the benefit of themselves and their families.” – Torrie Dunlap, CEO, Kids Included Together – Non-Profit Supporting Inclusion
