How Cozi Helps Parents of Neurodivergent Kids and Kids with Disabilities
Sometimes, life gets complex. When your child has a disability or a neurodivergent diagnosis, it can involve extra responsibilities for you as the parent. You might experience extra stress, or you might struggle to stay organized. The greater the complexity of your family life, the more helpful it can be to simplify with a family organization app like Cozi.
We reached out to Cozi families and asked them just that: How has Cozi helped you if you have a family member with a disability or who is neurodivergent? We want to share those answers with you, alongside a few reasons we think Cozi can be a helpful tool.
Keep track of appointments
If your family members have a lot of appointments, your schedule gets crowded. Cozi can help you keep track of everything you have going on.
Keep track of medication refills
When your kids (or other family members) are on medications, you may be responsible for handling prescription pickups and refills. With an already complex schedule or busy lifestyle, it can feel difficult to track medications, too. Try scheduling medication pickups in Cozi to offload one more responsibility from your mind.
Trust Cozi to remember things for you
You probably have a lot running through your mind on an average day. Regardless of how you feel about your child’s diagnosis, these responsibilities can be stressful. When you shift the burden of remembering things onto Cozi, you shift some stress as well.
Feel more organized and less overwhelmed
Juggling appointments, medications, stress, and the many other things you do for your child can easily lead to feeling overwhelmed. Using a single, shared calendar like Cozi to track all of your events can reduce overwhelm by a surprising amount.
Empower your kids to gain some independence, safely
As your kids grow older, you might want to help them take on more autonomy, but it can be complicated. With Cozi, you can empower your older child to keep their lives organized—in a way that lets you manage the situation without hovering.
We have a 20-year-old daughter on the autism spectrum and we could not survive without Cozi. We put all of her appointments and activities on the calendar and have added one of her one on one providers to our [account] as well. Our daughter is also able to add things to the grocery list and this has been helpful as well.
When life gets complex, it’s time to simplify
Cozi is designed to simplify your family life, lighten your mental load, and keep your family connected. If you care for or support your kids or other family members who experience disabilities or neurodivergence, Cozi might help lift the weight off your shoulders when you need it most.
If you’re managing your own disability or neurodivergence, many Cozi families have also shared with us the ways that Cozi helps them individually as adults. You can read more about that in this article: How Does Cozi Help Neurodiverse People and People With Disabilities?
