I am a homeschooler, a certified teacher in the state of Florida, a homeschool evaluator, a Professionally Certified Educational Therapist (National Institute for Learning Development), a Certified Dyslexia Therapist (International Dyslexia Association), a Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment Mediator, a Masgutova Method Core-In-Training, and a homeschool consultant with over 25 years of experience. (I also taught public school for 3 years.) I have daily experience with students who are gifted and yet struggle. Through my children and others I have experience with ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Asperger's, Sensory Processing Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Adoption Issues, and ODD. I thrive on helping those who are at wit's end, because I have been there with my own children and we are overcoming!!
I have been married to my husband, Chris, for 31 years. We have lived in Vero Beach, FL for the last 28 years. We have four children, three of whom are adopted. We are so thankful for the providential ways that God has brought our family together. Our children have been homeschooled from the beginning. Our oldest son resides in Vero Beach with his wife, Rachel. They just gave us our first grandchild, Charlotte, this past year! Isaac is employed in the field of Information Technology and is also a professional banjo player. Our daughter, Sofie, just finished her first year of law school AND marriage (at age 20) to our wonderful new son-in-law, Mike!! Our next son, Jonas, is graduating from high school with his AA in Civil Engineering. Our youngest son, Harrison, is a rising senior. He has a wide range of interests from baseball to dog training, and he has many entrepreneurial pursuits. It is exciting to think about what he may do next!
I believe in helping parents to help their child be successful, thus building a stronger bond between parent and child, which is crucial with children who are at risk. Giving advice is not what I do. I give options that are lesser known and out of the mainstream of the one size fits all education. Then parents decide what is best for their child.
Let me know if you are interested in any of my services: educational therapy, consulting, and/or homeschool evaluations. I believe your family will benefit from what I have learned.
