I am a mom of multiple children with varying brain-based conditions, including Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). I believe that children want to do well and will if they can. The key is understanding how the brain works. By doing so, we can support our children in ways they need to aid in improving outcomes.
Trying to parent my children with neurobehavioral disabilities and feeling like nothing worked. Being in the day-to-day behavioral challenges and not knowing what to do took a toll on my family.
seeking supports and services in school for my kids and feeling defeated because of the lack of knowledge of their disabilities and needs and not knowing how it works or what to ask for.
In these hard places in our family life, I sought training for myself and my husband. My search led me to FASCETS, where we learned the neurobehavioral approach to parenting. This life-changing training radically shifted the dynamics in our home, and I knew in my core I needed to share this with everyone I possibly could. After intensive training, I became a certified facilitator of the FASCETS neurobehavioral model.
in the school system, I never want anyone to feel alone and unprepared at the IEP table. After IEP training courses, I am now a parent partner, equipping and empowering parents in seeking support and services for their children at school.
I am passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of others.
my knowledge, experience, and education, I hope to empower caregivers, educators, professionals, organizations, and individuals with FASD, by providing starter strategies for navigating day-to-day living. As a parent partner in special education, I am passionate about equipping and empowering parents at the IEP table.
