Complicated Kids with Gabriele Nicolet

Complicated Kids is a podcast about why raising kids can feel so hard sometimes. We’ll talk about quirky kids, highly sensitive kids, Orchid Kids, disabilities, disorders and therapies. But we’ll also talk about general child development, parenting tips, and how to understand the child you brought home with you and agreed to house, clothe, feed and raise until their adulthood (What were you THINKING?!)

Parenting is an adventure anyway. If you’ve got complicated kids, it can feel like an extreme sport. Join me to unpack all of it, figure out who needs what, and help your family thrive.

Gabriele Nicolet is a Toddler Whisperer, Parent Coach and Speech Therapist. – She is the co-founder of Raising Orchid Kids – an online, global parent education and coaching practice, as well as the owner of SpeechKids – a private speech therapy practice in the DC metro area. Gabriele has a hard time eating out in restaurants if children are present because she always wants to play. She is passionate about all things child development, and particularly fascinated by the ways in which common parenting practices affect highly sensitive (Orchid) kids and how to tweak them so that everyone can stay calm and become their best Selves.

Join Scot Marken and me to talk about post high-school placements for neurodivergent kids. There are more and more opportunities for college-bound ND teens, as well as more and more supports for students who need them.


We'll talk about some of these programs as well as mental health conditions and supports that are available beyond high school. Becoming responsible for their own medication, becoming aware of their own neurology, being able to advocate for themselves are all skills that young adults will need in order to leave home and live independently. We'll dive into these topics and so much more.
