Jane Lynn Britton knows how overwhelming the parents of an autistic child can feel. She also knows how stressful, confused and alone they can feel. She knows because she has a son with autism.
Jane Lynn Britton was a successful Human Resource Leader and Coach, and in 2003, her world took a spin when her two-year-old son was diagnosed with autism. Without knowing what else to do, the family spent over $100,000 on the best doctors, therapists and schools they could find. As an HR Professional, Jane Lynn knew that each person had amazing potential and she had worked hard in her career to see people reach that potential. Unfortunately, after all the expensive schooling and treatments, her son was not improving. In fact, if anything he was getting worse.
It was at this point that Jane Lynn quit the career she loved to homeschool her son. Over the next eight years, she spent over 18,000 hours working with her son one-on-one beginning with simple things like to look, listen and to engage with her in activities. During that journey, she successfully trained over 30 people to use her techniques, while also learning holistic healing techniques to calm and strengthen her whole family. She also created a community around her son of extraordinary people and resources.
Jane Lynn’s time with her son paid off, He’s now thriving in school and life, and she’s back to work but this time in a new career. Jane Lynn has taken the lessons and techniques she learned and is helping other families and their special needs child. She started with a weekly Facebook Live, and now she has a TV show that airs twice a month. On her show, she shares tips, resources, and skills with expert guests, natural healing products like essential oils for the caregiver and the child, who like her son might be allergic to medicines and foods. And she ends each show by sharing one thing that a parent can do right now to help their child with autism. Her goal is to help other parents in their journey, as well as to bring learning, resources and heightened awareness to communities around the globe in a fresh and modern way.
