Last week on The Real with Sage Single Moms Ms. Jennifer Pink discussed dealing with behavior issues, but sometimes those behavior issues stem from bigger things like special needs. This week Sage Single Moms Patricia, Charlsei and Latoya discuss children with special needs with Teresa Wright Johnson and Contessa Louise Cooper.

Teresa Wright Johnson is a true Entrepreneur, Mommy, and Lived Life Expert who for years has helped women, children, and families develop sound systems for educational and economic success. As a business owner, coach, mentor, and certified parenting specialist Teresa has helped thousands of people throughout her career. Teresa holds a business degree and certifications in mental health, early childhood, domestic violence, and parent education. Teresa is the CEO of TWJME Enterprises and MommyCare Parent Support Services. Teresa is coined The Queen of Balance and helps her clients learn how to effectively navigate their business and personal life.

Contessa Louise Cooper’s rise to notoriety and influence is inspiring. Two years ago, she was an everyday consumer.  She kept journals, adding to the everyday experience of raising a family with an autistic son. She reflects a day in the life of being a single parent while challenging the educational resources available to autistic children. She pens every parent's love for a child of theirs while overcoming unique obstacles underestimating the support for children such as hers and others. Parents who have children with disabilities came to recognize Contessa as a resource aid and a champion. Her first book, “Mad At The World: How To Move On And Find Peace When You're A Special Needs Parent” made it the top of the Amazon Best Sellers list. She is currently writing a Handbook to Modern Dating and Sex for individuals with High Functioning Autism and a Parent's Guide to assist with discussing sensitive topics.
