As parents/guardians, we want to see our children succeed, no matter what it takes. When our children struggle, we struggle as well. These struggles can lead to frustration, especially when we are not able to pinpoint the root cause. Too often, when children present with complex behaviors, and/or varying levels of abilities/intellect, they are mis-understood, or even mis-diagnosed. If you are feeling lost as a parent, are experiencing challenges navigating the school system, or question the narrative regarding your child, please know you are not alone. I am here to help.
