Hi! My name is Lisa Wong and I am the parent of a wonderful young man with Autism. My son has taught me so many things over the years and I love sharing these kernels of knowledge with other parents.
Working as a nurse for 20 years has given me many incredible skills: observation, assessment, communication, the ability to educate. I have honed my ability to see not only what is on the outside, but often what lies beneath the surface. I love using a holistic approach – meaning simply that we are not just one thing. In order to help someone, it is important to look at all of their being: mind-body-spirit-emotion-environment. I have also adopted the GROW model for helping to move clients forward: Goal, Current Reality, Options, and Will.
I have spent a great many hours educating not only patients in my nursing career, but staff as well – in many environments: facility, home, and by phone. I have learned that adult learning is it’s own specialty.
In addition to my varied nursing career: Long-Term Nursing Home, General Medical-Surgical Hospital Nursing, Home Care Visit Nurse, Telephone Triage, and Chart Review/Medical Coding for Home Care, I also spent almost 3 years directing a Special Needs Program at a large church where I oversaw about 50 volunteers and worked to minister to about 30 families. I created a training program for the volunteers and started several new programs, including one for teenagers with special needs.
For the last 10 years I have been working on creating resources for parents to help them create a foundation of home programming and have been available by phone and email for a listening ear. Recently I have decided that it is time to leave my nursing career behind to focus on families.
