Has your child received a diagnosis in one, or a combination, of the following categories?

  • speech/language disorder (ie: Apraxia)
  • social communication disorder/ condition (ie:  Autism, Asperger Syndrome, ADD/ADHD)
  • genetic/ chromosomal condition
  • global developmental disorder/delay
  • neurological disorder (ie: sensory processing, Auditory Processing Disorder, Tourette’s Syndrome)
  • mobility and muscular disorder (ie: Cerebral Palsy)
  • learning disability (ie: Dyslexia, Dysgraphia)

Are you struggling with adapting ideas to the needs of a child who is:

  • non-verbal?
  • sensory sensitive?
  • hyperactive/ impulsive?
  • distracted?
  • developmentally delayed?

I help English-speaking families of individuals with special needs who are developmentally at the elementary level: 

  • get started homeschooling with confidence
  • keep motivated throughout the year
  • manage homework in the after-school hours (for after-schoolers)
  • manage your time, spend quality time on “schooling” as well as on just being a family (and not only on weekends)
  • plan the academic year (or just one part of the year)
  • set-up an organizational and record-keeping system that you actually stick to
  • find, create, and adapt materials and lessons for your child with special needs (even if teaching other children) without losing your mind
  • start figuring it out for yourself by giving you the tools you need to think about adaptations
  • and so much more… just bring your questions/concerns to the table

You have a really soothing presence – it was really easy to talk with you. You were really prepared for the call and had some ideas already for when we talked.  Getting all of the great website suggestions and activity ideas really helped me finalize my plan and feel more confident in my new teacher role.

I know Gabriella as a loving mother and dedicated teacher. Gabriella is constantly thinking about new strategies she could use to make the learning experience a meaningful one for children.
