Brenda Mann MA Ed-Educator with over 25 years of experience and Mom who “GETS IT”

 

Educating in both public and private schools for over 20 years I saw a tremendously disappointing number of parents whose children were struggling but didn’t know how to help them in school.  I was not allowed to suggest a possible diagnosis of ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia or Mood Disorders, as I am not a medical doctor.  Unfortunately, doctors usually can’t see the symptoms of ADHD in their office while teachers are not trained to diagnose this disorder and are often not aware of how these disorders impact school success. Sadly, the parents who were doing everything they knew to do at home to support their child, were “masking” the effects of the disability by their intense amount of support at home.  Often their support was useless, as it did not transfer to school success, as the parents were not  educated in proper home supports and necessary school collaboration.  Their efforts, although not fully successful, actually kept their children from receiving additional supports in school.  Had these parents known how to properly advocate for their child, there were many supports their child should have received but were unaware of their options for support.

 

My Goal For Families and Children

My goal is to support and enrich the unique academic, behavioral, emotional and social progress of children who are struggling, behaviorally or academically, due to ADHD, Dyslexia, Mood and other related disorders.   A major focus for my families is creating a positive connection between home and school.  The goal is for families to find the appropriate professional supports and strategies to aid their child’s needs and “bridge the gap” between parents and professional support.   My passion is to educate parents in having a “disability perspective” to best guide their child.  My experience, as a Mom and Educator who “gets it” allows me to coach children to do better both socially and academically.
