I trained as an ADHD coach at the ADD Coach Academy. I'm also trained to use Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) with my clients. It's my most popular offering because it is a multi-sensory program for improving brain function that's fun and easily customized for all ages and skill levels.
Neuro-developmental disorders, like ADHD, ASD, SPD, LD and others, affect the whole family, so I like to work with all family members, including parents, whenever possible. When using iLs, I have 3 units, so parents can use the Calming or Performance Optimization Program while I work with their child/children using the Sensory Motor, Attention & Concentration, or Reading & Auditory Processing Programs. Everyone takes an assessment to get the right program fit. I also combine programs based on assessment results to create a truly customized plan. Sometimes the iLs program works so well that we don't even need to do much coaching.

Calm & Connected Series: An Introduction to Parenting with the Brain in Mind
Group iLs sessions: up to 3 individuals can participate at a time.
While a student at Iowa State University, I created the Campus Network for Learning Disabled Students. I realized then how important it was for those with atypical brain wiring to get the support and resources they needed to succeed. Ours is a hidden disability that others often attribute to character flaws. It is easy to fall into that thinking ourselves. I know that I did. I could never understand why I couldn't get it together and keep it together. It did a lot of damage to my self-esteem and I became suicidal in high school. I finally felt empowered once I had the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder and various learning disabilities. I finally had an explanation for my continual frustration and I worked hard to connect with resources that could help me succeed.
