How a mom with a differently abled kid started a school
L.U.C.C.A. recognises that each child is an individual. They aim to create a safe, caring and respectful multicultural environment for all their learners with challenges. Their objective is to foster a desire to learn, to boost self-confidence and to nurture the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of each child that can best develop the skills and character necessary, to enhance themselves and their communities, achieving success for the future.
Founded by a mother of a special needs child, L.U.C.C.A. Support & Care Centre opened its doors in May 2014. The exposure to numerous centres and facilities over the years, trying to find the “right” place for her son, Lucca, has been challenging. They have encountered so many wonderful people over this time, who have had a huge impact on Lucca’s progress but as his mother, she felt that there was always that “something” missing. Alison spent many years doing research on various approaches, learning methods, therapy interventions and communication methods available for special needs children.
Burned out? Two life coaches weigh in!
This week our life and business coach Jason Bernic has brought a fellow coach, Beth Schneiter, to help us, specifically to fix burnout! Beth Schneiter, owner of Wildflower Transformation Coaching, specialises in working with women who are at risk of stress and burnout by focusing on limiting beliefs and emotions.
She is a transformational coach and speaker with a history of working in banking and finance at one of the largest global trading companies. She is also mom to her daughter Chloe, so you could say she knows a thing or two about stress and burnout. It is Beth's mission to help women let go of who they think they should be, reconnect with themselves, and transform burnout.
Roxane Hayward is a name you will remember!
She is young, she is driven, she is a powerhouse of talent, grit, and love, and she is changing the world, one day at a time! Born in Johannesburg and based in L.A, this young woman is making waves in the international acting scene, in projects like 'Death Race - Inferno' and the BBC comedy, 'Beaver Falls'.
But, that is the least cool thing about her, and admittedly that's pretty cool. Roxane is an accomplished actress, yes, and with some great projects lined up for 2021, she is bound to become a household name. I, however, wanted chat to her about the other things she's busy with that are set to impact the world!
