My goal is to serve children who experience challenges impacting school performance, so that learning is accessible and performance is optimal. Students may experience these difficulties due to a variety of diagnoses including ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Learning Disabilities or Delays, and Executive Function Deficits. Students with these diagnoses often struggle with initiating homework, planning, organizing, time management, turning in work, communicating with teachers, and problem-solving through obstacles or skill deficiencies. My passion is guiding students through the process of overcoming these deficits.
