The dynamic between kids and parents is powerful. When it is used to its best advantage it moves mountains. Kids with learning issues need their parents to be:
- Well informed about their child's learning disability
- Understand where they are challenged
- Trouble shoot compensatory strategies
- Advocate in a big way for their ability to succeed
How Can You Do This?

- The good to the challenging
- The ins and outs
- The difficult parts and the easier parts
- Disability rights in school, in the community and in the workplace
- Reasonable accommodations
- School procedures

I Know First Hand:
You see, I know first hand how scary it can be to “jump right in” around raising your child in a world that likes to put people into boxes. “Focus on your strengths,” I kept saying to our youngest son who had awful learning issues. AND “Know your weaknesses so they don’t surprise you and get you down when you’re not looking,” I would say. And you know, as well as I do, that there is a whole lot more…
Let Me Help:
I am living my dream of helping parents who have kids with learning issues. I compassionately coach parents, individuals and young adults with learning disabilities to take a hold of their dreams by:
- Using their strengths to counter balance weaknesses
- Know their weaknesses and use compensatory strategies to ease the times they can't side step a difficult task.
- Know their passions & unique talents that can help find places they can shine!
