Get unstuck, ditch the overwhelm, and find confidence, connection, and JOY in parenting your differently wired child
I’m Debbie Reber. And I’m not just the creator of Tilt Parenting and the author of Differently Wired, but I’m also mom to a 18-year-old differently wired child. I’m in the trenches daily. I’m learning from the same experts you are.
I know how overwhelming it can be to make sense of all of the information coming at us from authors, coaches, therapists, teachers, podcasts, blog posts, and online summits, let alone implement it so our family’s life can improve.
I created the Differently Wired Club to cut through the noise and break it down so you can create a path that works for you and put it into practice.
The Differently Wired Club is
not your typical membership community
There’s something here for everyone, whether you’re a sit back and absorb
learner, a hands-on, connect and engage learner, and everything in between.
Club membership includes:
Each month begins with a short video (20 minutes) about that month’s theme, including a downloadable PDF support sheet with key takeaways and journal prompts to help you apply the concepts in your own life. (See below for a list of sample themes.)
Q&A / COACHING CALL
Live 75-minute calls are held with me and parent coach Margaret Webb on the 3rd Wednesday of each month (2pm ET) to answer questions and provide group coaching. Members can submit questions in advance so they can get the info they need, regardless of whether or not they can attend live. Recordings and chat are available.
MONTHLY VIRTUAL BOOK CLUB & EXPERT VISITS
Some months we read a parenting book (mostly nonfiction, sometimes memoir), and the author joins us for a live Zoom at the end of the month to discuss the book as a group (see below for a list of past and upcoming books). Other months we’re joined by a thought leader / expert for a insightful, informative conversation. Recordings and chat are available.
5 MONTHLY VIRTUAL OFFICE HOURS
Five virtual “office hours” are held each month where members can hang out, chat, connect with other members, and talk about whatever is happening in our worlds. These intimate gatherings are not recorded, and give members a chance to form relationships with others as well as get in-the-moment support. Office hour calls are facilitated by different parent coaches and are offered at a variety of set times so members can plan their attendance ahead.
PRIVATE SUPPORT DISCUSSION BOARDS
Members can connect to form friendships, seek advice, problem-solve around challenges, cheer each other on, and ask for accountability on the Membership site forums. The best online communities are ones where participants feel a sense of responsibility for everyone else’s success—together we can do anything.
Members have access to a library of exclusive Club content—monthly videos of bonus masterclasses, past author visits, as well as monthly coaching calls and all previous monthly thematic content. (See below for a look at some of the experts featured in the Club library.)
This is how the shift happens…
Real change takes conscious intention and deliberate implementation.
The Club was designed with these four foundational pillars in place to support this work:
Is the Differently Wired Club a fit for you?
THE CLUB IS FOR YOU IF YOU:
- Have read Differently Wired* and are ready to go deeper
- Are willing to get uncomfortable in order to examine approaches that aren’t best serving you and your family
- Are in alignment with Tilt’s values of optimism, inclusion, and possibility
- Are longing for an authentic community where you can feel safe sharing your journey
- Can dedicate 30-60 minutes each week to show up for yourself
THE CLUB IS NOT FOR YOU IF YOU:
- Are looking for quick fixes
- Believe your child can be “cured” of their neurodifferences
- Are in search of a place to vent about what’s challenging about parenting your child
- Don’t have time to be a resource and support for others within the community

How does the Differently Wired Club membership work?
Membership clubs are designed to provide people with ongoing support and community with like-minded people all working toward the same goals. For the Differently Wired Club, which first began in October 2019, membership fees are charged monthly and you can remain in the Club as long as you like (and as long as you’re paying the monthly fee).
How much does the Differently Wired Club cost?
Club membership is $47 / month. Need-based scholarships are available (email Lindsay at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about scholarships).
What is the time commitment?
You’ll want to set aside around 30-60 minutes each week, to do things like listen to a masterclass, participate in the Q&A call, and so on. I consciously designed this program so parents can participate even if they have very little (or any) free time. The real work happens as you’re living your life and you become more aware, conscious, and intentional.
I can't attend the live calls. Will I still get value from the program?
Absolutely. All of the live Q&A/Coaching calls and the Virtual Book Club author visits are recorded and transcribed, so you can read or listen to them on your own schedule. For the Q&A /Coaching calls, each month you’ll have the opportunity to submit questions in advance of the call, so I’ll answer those whether you’re live with us or not. The private forums are also a great, and safe, way to ask for support around specific challenges.
How will I access the course materials?
The membership materials are accessible through a private website, and all materials—the video lessons (audio, video, and transcripts), the PDF worksheets and “homework” assignments, and recorded Q&A calls are available there. Monthly Q&A calls and virtual book clubs are held via Zoom and simultaneously streamed in a private Facebook group. Virtual office hours take place in a Zoom “room” and are not recorded.
Will I have access to content from previous months?
Yes, no matter when you join the Differently Wired Club, you will have access to all of the content from previous months, which you can review and consume at any time. There is no “order” in which to do the classes, so you can jump around and dive into the themes that most resonate with you.
How much personal attention will I receive?
While this is a group program, the monthly Q&A calls are designed to answer your specific questions and provide group coaching, and the 5 monthly virtual office hours are wonderful opportunities to share, get advice, and be in a safe space with others who can relate to what you’re going through. Lastly, the private community discussion board is a safe place for you to share challenges and seek resources and feedback.
How do I cancel my membership?
Your membership in the Differently Wired Club is based on a monthly subscription, which you can cancel at any time. To cancel your membership, fill out this form.
Terms & Conditions
Membership in the Club is based on a monthly subscription. Your membership will officially begin on the first of the month after joining, at which time you’ll have immediate access to all of the materials of the Club — videos, downloadable PDFs, discussion groups, and more — on the Differently Wired Club’s learning platform. You’ll receive an email with login information after registering.
Membership can be cancelled at any time. When members leave, their membership is good through the end of the month, and they have the opportunity to download any material before leaving the group. There are no refunds.
Here’s what Club members are saying…
Without even a second thought, Debbie supported my involvement in the Club at a time when I needed it most. She supported me in both word and deed. Her openness to my participation on my own terms sets the example of what we should be doing with our kids, what the world of us should be doing with each other. Always the skeptic, when I started tuning in to her podcast at the beginning of the pandemic, I had no idea how life changing it would be. Through the Club I met the community I had been looking for.
I love the people in my life and their neurotypical children, but their advice and oversimplification can be grating. My child isn’t going learn by me letting him fall; he will dangerously seek this sensory experience again and again. My son isn’t cutting in line; he doesn’t spatially understand where the front and back are. But I can feel safe in this club I am with people who get it, are supportive, and have ideas that are actually helpful. I also appreciate how well thought out and organized everything is to appeal to my own diverse parenting needs.
There are so many awesome books, podcasts, articles, and online summits out there, but the information overload can feel sometimes paralyzing. The Club makes small goals feel manageable and realistic, along with a community of people working through similar challenges. I find it also helps me process the journey I’m on much more cheaply than therapy.
