Parent Workshop

Navigating School for Your Neurodivergent Child

This workshop is for parents raising a neurodivergent child of any age, who want tips navigating school for your child. Public, private, homeschool, unschool? What are all the options? If your child is attending a traditional school, you may struggle to figure out when to not be concerned, how to advocate for more support, and what kinds of supports are even available.

As a former school psychologist and child psychologist specializing in supporting neurodivergent kids, their families, and their teachers, I will walk you through what I think are the most important factors to identify the best educational fit for your child, help you understand when and how to advocate for your child, plus you can ask me all of your questions about regular education, special education, IEPs, and 504s.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • What to look for in a school that aligns with your child’s strengths and needs and how to know if your child is in the wrong educational setting
  • Why you might consider public, private, homeschool, or unschooling
  • What are the differences between a 504 Plan and an IEP level of support
  • How to effectively collaborate with teachers and understanding what types of call for an email, phone call, conference, or formal meeting
  • Preparing your child for the next level of school at Kindergarten, middle school, high school, and beyond
