Thank you for taking the first step in helping to assure your child’s educational experience is not only successful, but also enjoyable. As a parent of a child who struggled in school, I have heard it all – “You need to learn to let go.” “You are over-protective.” “Everything is fine.” “Not all children are straight ‘A’ students.” The list of insults goes on and on. In the end, I decided that if I wanted my child to learn how to read, I would have to teach him myself – so, I enrolled at Rivier University in Nashua, New Hampshire and earned my teaching degree. Now, I am a Special Education Advocate, Educational Consultant, and Reading and Writing Tutor dedicated to meeting the needs of children and adults in Southern New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts areas.
I am firmly committed to the truth that ALL children can learn if given appropriate instruction. Whether that is through proper classroom management, appropriate accommodations, or correctly implemented, explicitly taught, systematic instruction. It is essential that the methods and programs being implemented are not only data driven and research based, but, more importantly, that they are being implemented with fidelity and validity.
Having served as a special education teacher certified as a Reading and Writing Specialist — as well as an Emotional and Behavioral Specialist — for the past decade, I know what is happening in education today. I have worked with the most at-risk students due to academic, physical, social, emotional, and behavioral disabilities. I not only know the questions to ask, I know the solutions to seek. Most importantly, I know that utilizing an education consultant and advocate places parents in the best possible position to get what their child needs to succeed in today’s classroom.
Personalized service based upon the individual needs of parents and their children:
As an educational consultant I meet with parents, as needed, to help them navigate the Special Education and 504 process. I will help draft letters, and research instructional approaches, strategies, and programs that will best serve the individual educational needs of their children.
Special Education & 504 Advocate
As a Special Education and 504 advocate I work with parents and the School District in a proactive and cooperative manner to develop an educational plan that meets the child’s individual academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs.
Reading and Writing Tutor
As a reading and writing tutor I utilize reseach-based programs to provide children with data-driven, individualized, explicit, systematic instruction.
Please call me to make an appointment today. Together we can find a solution that will meet your child’s unique educational needs and enhance their educational performance.
