Helping home school kids in Northern El Paso County with learning and memory challenges to maximize their potential using the Equipping Minds Cognitive Development Curriculum
My husband, Rick, and I home schooled our children for 14 years. Home schooling was both a true joy and a Herculean effort. Our wonderfully unique kids sometimes needed to learn in different ways. We struggled with a variety of challenges including: visual perception, memory problems, ADD, and auditory processing…. You may be able to relate.
My love of teaching and helping kids to reach their full potential led me to pursue a Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology. Each child is uniquely gifted and challenged. Tailoring of instruction to individual needs is critical. It is with this thought in mind that we chose to home school our two youngest children. Now that our kids are successfully launched (one is an Army Captain, one is an Occupational Therapist, and one is a National Park Ranger), I want to help other home school parents help their kids.
Decades of teaching, study, and observation of effective therapists convince me that a strong neurological foundation is absolutely necessary before learning can take place. Joy and success in learning are directly tied to to the integrity of this foundation.
