Hi Parents!


I’m Kate Lynch, a mindful parenting coach for neurodiverse families.

I help parents self-regulate so they can enjoy parenting their neurodivergent kids.

I'm the author of the upcoming book Atypical Kids, Mindful Parents: The joys and struggles of raising neurodivergent kids. I'm a cycle breaker, a disability justice advocate, and a gentle yoga teacher. I've been supporting parents since 2002. My little neurodiverse family lives in a magical land called Brooklyn.

Subscribe to Atypical Kids, Mindful Parents Blog, where I'm writing at the intersection of mindful parenting and neurodiversity. The newsletter is for parents of neurodivergent kids who want to feel more connected, calm and present.

Through self-compassion and mindfulness, we can transform our relationships, and co-create a more inclusive world!
