Newport Beach, CA, May 4, 2020: A new partnership has been developed between Poppy Life Care and SPL Life Coaching for families with special needs children. The partnership will bring both free and paid services to Poppy Life Care customers.
Susanna Peace Lovell, SPL Life Coaching principal and certified professional life coach, will develop a program featuring virtual life coaching sessions, specifically designed to address issues faced by families with children who have special needs, i.e., spectrum disorders, ADHD, anxiety or depression.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer this Life Coaching program to our customers,” said Erica Solis, Poppy Life Care founder and CEO. “With special needs families hard-pressed to add one more appointment to their day, we hope that the convenience of virtual sessions will be useful to them.”
The life coaching sessions will be held twice a month, customized to address the unique issues faced by each family. Lovell also has an online, self-paced course featuring classes covering a variety of topics focused on special needs families, such as the importance of self-care, how to advocate for your child, co-parenting, finding the best therapeutic support and much more. These classes will be available to Poppy Life Care customers at a discounted rate.
“Having a child with special needs is stressful on a family and requires all members to navigate a conscious and specific path through this challenging life together,” says Lovell. “My goal is to help special needs families learn how to best advocate for their special needs child, and ways to nurture them – and themselves – to whole family wellness.”
