Vivian Kahn Adler on Suffering Loss, Helping Children with Special Needs, and Choosing to Be Grateful Every Day
Vivian Kahn Adler is a speech pathologist who specializes in pediatric feeding disorders. After losing her daughter in 1989 to a rare genetic disorder, Vivian was encouraged by well-meaning friends to shift away from working with children with special needs. Instead, Vivian leaned in, realizing that helping these children was her “raison d’etre.” Vivian talks about showing up for others who are going through loss and how she lives a life of gratitude.
