MOM OF NEURODIVERSE INDIVIDUALS
I've been there...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.
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. I sought further education and training on FASD and neurodiverse conditions that have allowed me to help many families and professionals.
I've been at the IEP table... seeking support 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.
Because of my experience... in the school system, I never want anyone to feel alone and unprepared at the IEP table. As an IEP coach, collaborator, and trainer, I equip and empower parents in seeking appropriate support and services for their children at school. I specialize in FASD, neurodiversity, and behavioral challenges.
By Sharing ...my knowledge, lived experience, and education, I empower caregivers, educators, professionals, organizations, and individuals with FASD, by providing starter strategies for navigating day-to-day living at home, at school, and in the community.
