I get it!
Any homeschool family can and should thrive...but that doesn't mean that homeschooling is easy.
In fact, sometimes it almost feels impossible.
When a child has walked out of the room for the 15th time because he just can't focus.
And another child is crying over the number of math problems on a page.
And, after a month of gentle instruction on pencil grip there are still tantrums everyday.
You feel like you can never be enough for your children.
I get it!
With 15 years experience as an Occupational Therapist plus 6 years as a homeschool mom, I'm ready to be your advocate.
Homeschool Families come to me asking:
I feel like I can't teach my child, is this true?
How can we manage our homeschool day when my child gets overwhelmed?
How do I help my child with organizing and independence?
How can we work on handwriting with my young child?
How do we balance all of our children's needs during the day?
What equipment can help my child in our homeschool room?
Is my homeschool good enough for my child with special needs?
Are there any homeschool friendly occupational therapists in my area? I do not want to be told to put my kid back in public school.
Here's how I help homeschool families:
Join the 1200+ families in our FREE Homeschool Therapy Ideas Facebook group.
Let me be your advocate for homeschooling by recommending the course "Homeschool Context and Treatment Strategies" to your occupational therapist
Schedule a personal homeschool consultation where we discuss your homeschool day and I make specific recommendations to address your personal needs
Invite me to speak at your co-op, event, podcast. Book a class or public speaking event on Occupational Therapy and homeschool here.
