When my son Matthew was 5, I left my career as a lawyer to run a full time homeschool program for him. During our 8 years as a homeschool team, I studied and utilized many different therapies and techniques, and discovered that despite the differences, these methods have common principles that offer effective parenting solutions. I also learned that parents can be an essential source of advice and support for each other.
When my son returned to school, I wanted to create a program to streamline the process for parents to learn these strategies and gain functional tools. I wanted to empower parents to meet parenting challenges, increase confidence, and reduce parenting stress. I returned to school to obtain my Masters in Education (M.S. Ed.) to help me develop an integrated program of education and support for parents. I also became a certified trainer to help me facilitate the program.
As parents, we are often bombarded with too much information and too few effective solutions. My goal is to offer parents a few effective strategies with a focus on how to implement those methods in real time, in real circumstances.
To empower parents of children with autism and other developmental challenges by offering effective parenting education that is practical, accessible, and reinforced by ongoing education and emotional support in an online network of parents.
