You will start off with a 30-min consultation with the Special Learning Teacher.
We'll take the time to get to know your child's current situation.
We'll go over what your child’s strengths are, what your child is currently struggling with, and what your goals are.
This consultation will lay the groundwork for our work together.
Think of it as a questionaire, but no writing required!
It will help us dive right into the strategy session to make the most of our time together.
1-on-1 Virtual Goal Setting Sessions
Every month, we will hop on a 60-minute phone call to set the
"Goal of the Month." This gives you the opportunity to tackle 3 big goals altogether.
You’ll create one priority goal each month. This goal could be:
I will work with you to prioritize the goals that make the biggest difference for your family. Then we'll break down the goals into smaller monthly goals and weekly action plans.
For example, the goal might be "increase homework completion."
First, we’ll find out what percentage your child currently completes on a regular basis (let’s say 20%).
Then, we’ll set a realistic monthly goal of increasing homework completion to 80% in 30 days.
Finally, we’ll set up schedules, structures, and supports your child needs to complete homework every night.
Week-by-Week Action Plan
You will receive customized weekly action plans desgined to achieve your monthly goals.
You will walk through the steps you need to take each week so that you are never spinning your wheels.
3 Month In-Depth Action Plan
I can help you have massive breakthroughs for your child and family. The 3-Month in-depth Action Plan helps ensure you’re creating the most effective steps to see positive change and results for:
Academic, Behavior, Social, or Family-Related goals.
This plan is perfect if you need sustained help with more than one area of concern or problem. We’ll prioritize your needs, set long-term goals and weekly action plans so you never feel like spinning your wheels. We’ll talk every week to monitor and measure progress, tweak and improve our approaches, and set new goals for the coming week. I will also communicate with any other service providers your child may have, in order for everyone to work together to accelerate the positive results.
Any challenges you’re having with your child, I’ll give you my recommendations for how to resolve them. Maybe you’re already doing well and you simply want to maximize the gains your child is making. I’ll share how I think you can do that.
You will get a total of: Over 6+ hours of one-on-one phone time, 12 personal emails, 12 action plans AND a 20 minute recorded audio answer from me.
Weekly progress monitoring sessions:
We'll hop on a weekly 30-min phone call and go through the week’s action plan. You're never going to have to guess how to implement correctly, so you never have to waste your time.
I’ll provide you with data collection sheets so that we can talk about results, and tweak our approach as we move along. We’ll assess what’s working, what needs tweaking, and what comes next.
Weekly Email Follow UP
I’ll follow up our conversations with a weekly email outlinng the goals and actions we had discussed together. You’ll get whatever resources, data sheets and step-by-step checklists you need to meet your goals.
Service Provider Communication
I will write a letter to any/all service providers, teachers, baby sitters, or other adults that work with your children on a regular basis to explain the action plan and how they can contribute.
This will prevent any misunderstandings or miscommunications so that all parts of the system can work holistically for your child's progress.

Some answers to questions you might have...
Q: How are you different from an advocate?
Hiring an advocate can be expensive. You may be fortunate enough to live in an area that offers free advocate services. And by all means, if you need an advocate, please seek one out.
Advocates are there to help you when you feel like your child’s rights are being violated, at which point, please seek out an advocate as soon as possible.
I’m here because I want to help you prevent those situations. As a teacher, I firmly believe the IEP process is well designed to facilitate collaboration between teachers and parents.
When you show up with an advocate, the teachers and administrators will get defensive. And the thing is, when a school gets defensive, you end up having to "fight" for everything you want. Feelings of cooperation can go by the wayside, and each negotiation can feel like a war of attrition.
Which is precisely what I DON'T want for you.
What I do is show you how to communicate more smoothly and effectively with the school, so you can get the school to cooperate with you. (And secure the support and accommodations appropriate for your child.)
What I can help you do, is set up a program at home to meet your child’s educational and behavioral needs so you can continue seeing progress outside of school. My expertise and experience extends beyond IEPs. Every day I create an support the learning and behavioral needs of kids with ADHD, Specific Learning Disabilities, Autism and giftedness/twice exceptional. I also offer support for parents who are homeschooling with teaching techniques, curriculum support and supplemental tutoring.
I can teach you the strategies and steps that I take to deal with defiance, learned helplessness, social issues, attention issues, and learning difficulties so you can spend less time arguing and more time creating results like improved report cards.
Q: How on earth can you help me online?
I'll work with you just same way I would help you if we were to meet in person. We'll talk over Skype, I ask you targeted questions, we brainstorm solutions that would work for your family, and I show you how to implement an action plan that will work for YOUR child.
It’s not very different than if we were working together in person. First, we'll sit down for our 30-minute initial consultation. During that time, I’ll ask you various questions to help me get a sense of your difficulties and your goals. Next, we’ll brainstorm some strategies that are custom-tailored to your family's unique needs.
From there, we have schedule calls and emails to coach you through the strategies and techniques you’ll need to meet your goals. I’ll give you the tools and resources you need to be successful and I will help you tweak and refine your approach along the way, so you can be sure to see the results you want.
Q: What is an Action Plan?
I’m glad you asked that. An Action Plan is a step-by-step guide walking you through the steps of your customized intervention.
It includes data collection sheets to make sure that you are getting the results you are looking for.
Here are some example Action Plans we can work on:
Increase the amount of homework your child can complete by themselves (without fighting!)
Stop the constant fighting between siblings (get them to start cooperating with each other --- more peace of mind for you!)
Decrease tantrums! We'll put structures in place at home to decrease chaos and end the constant complaining.
Create better study habits so your child can be an independent learner and have more confidence in their abilities to problem solve.
Q: What kind of results can I expect by working online?
Ever heard of the phrase: "Give a man a fish - Feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish - Feed him for a lifetime"?
Our work together is similar to that. I want to give YOU the tools of the trade so you have the ability to be your own problem solver, without requiring professional assistance to meet your child's needs. In my experience, I've seen parents effectively implement high-quality interventions with lasting results after just a few weeks of my training.
From the very start, I’ll ask you what goals you want to have. I will work with you to get the results that you are looking for. Some examples include:
Improved grades in Math and English by increasing problem solving skills
Much less time spent arguing with your child and enforcing rules because of successful systems in place reducing overall stress and anxiety.
Help your child make and keep friends by teaching them skills like cooperation, sharing and being a "good sport."
You’ll get 1-on-1 Skype sessions with me, email support, and access to exclusive resource guides and checklists that I make exclusive for parents I work with. All this will mean more peace of mind for you, less chaos, more confidence as an authority figure for your child, and less stress and anxiety.
By knowing exactly what you need to do each day to maintain structure, you'll see sustained benefits long after our session is over.
Q: Why are you working with the parent and not the child?
Think about it. If I were to work with your child, we would be able to squeeze in one, maybe two hours a week. Now estimate how many hours you spend with your child. Imagine if you were able to employ highly effective strategies throughout the course of your daily interactions. How much more support is your child going to get through a parent-delivered model? Ah-ha!
