God has blessed me with many experiences that help me to understand the struggles parents face when having a different learner. It brings me joy to help a parent navigate the stormy waters of finding the right school, the right person to evaluate your child, to read through and explain the detailed reports or IEP’s, and connect them with other parents that can relate. Please contact me for more information.
