Working Parents

Neurodiverse Children

Special Education

      

 

When your life revolves around the exceptional needs of your neurodivergent child and where school is often the key issue and concern, a seasoned advocate and coach to help you map the path forward will make all the difference.

Your ability to effectively navigate the special education arena is key to helping your child make measurable progress in school. It will also allow you more time to focus on your family, job, and your own needs as well. This is where the road for you and your child moves from struggles to success.

 

School Bus

Your Child

Determined or yet to be diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, learning differences, giftedness, and/or mental health issues.

Struggling often defines their daily school life...academically, socially, behaviorally, developmentally, or a combination of needs.

From IEP issues to school avoidance, behind every struggling child is a struggling parent, impacting all areas of life both at home and work.

You

Learning about your child, navigating school, juggling their complex needs with your family, career/job, and your own needs as well.

Access to resources, information, support, guidance, and answers are difficult to secure while addressing the complex day-to-day issues.

Your well-being and the enormous stressors that frame daily life are taking a toll on your family, your job, and your ability to handle it all.
