Embracing the Joys and Challenges of Supporting Children with Diverse Needs
to We Play To Grow
Are you a champion of a child with unique developmental and behavioral needs? Would you like to have the confidence to help
your child successfully navigate the challenges of home, school
and community life?
YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE
As a pediatric occupational therapist, consultant, and coach helping children to sleep, eat, toilet, dress, move, play and learn is my specialty. Supporting parents, educators, and therapists is my passion.
The great questions of raising and educating children with diverse abilities and challenges can sometimes seem daunting. Will your child ever eat more than three foods that are not orange? Will he learn to bathe, dress, and toilet himself ? When she goes to school will she be able to sit long enough to learn? Will they ever make friends? Don't let these questions keep you up at night ! With skill, creativity, and humor you can turn your child's skills and challenges into opportunities to take the next step in fulfilling their potential. Create the support that's right for you and your child with a combination of coaching, courses, and community.

All children can be more independent, calm and happy. How do I know this ? As a therapist, consultant, and coach I have spent more than 35 years translating the latest research in child development into helping parents, therapists, and educators support the children they love. This keeps me busy playing, and learning interesting new things to share. At We Play To Grow we are building a combination of coaching, courses and community to support each other in the journey of raising, educating, and celebrating children with diverse needs.
