Does your child have some behaviors that are challenging to them or you? Have you reached out to professionals and not received the support you and your child needs?
Challenging or aversive behaviors are common for children with a diagnosis. These behaviors can present themselves by looking like non-compliance, preservation, injurious habits (to themselves and/or others), and hinder their learning and participation in their community. These behaviors can be the response to feelings of anxiety, frustration, confusion, lack of knowledge of skill being requested, feelings of being out of control, or simply not physically feeling well. When these challenges come up let me help you figure out strategies to help your child extinguish these habits and find more appropriate replacement behaviors. By utilizing my consultation services you will receive exemplary 1:1 support from myself for 1 hour (by phone, Skype, or in person) to recognize what your child's behavior is communicating. I will then put together a plan tailored to your child that will include;
Summary of behaviors we discussed during the meeting.
The purpose, or motivational operations, of the behavior (the purpose it is serving).
Techniques for you or your educational team to use to help guide when/where the behavior is happening and why.
A list of strategies tailored to your unique child and their immediate needs. These are techniques that I will explain in depth and give you support in how to best implement them.
Choosing to use my consulting you are secure in the knowledge that someone has heard your child's individual story and is creating a plan with their unique strengths and needs in mind.

IEP/504 plan Support & Coaching
IEP/504 Plan Support & Coaching
As a Moderate/Severe Special Education Teacher for 10 years, I am extremely familiar with IEP's and 504 Plans and what each entails. I have worked with both of these as a teacher and as a parent and can appreciate the emotional stress it can put on a family. My job is to help take away some of that stress and stand with you, listen to your questions and concerns, and be someone who is there for support and advocacy during the meeting. This includes;
Meeting to review your child's current IEP or 504 Plan so I can become familiar with the agreed-upon terms that were signed off on. During this time you will let me know why you are calling a meeting (or addendum/amendment meeting) and what your concerns are.
We will discuss strategies to address what the concern is in regards to their school plans. We will talk about how you would like to approach the school, or if you would prefer I contact your child's educational team.
Offer creative and collaborative strategies for challenging meetings.
Help to keep a positive relationship with your child's educational team and provide information to help their team understand them as a whole child and their diagnosis.
