Those close to me know that it has always been my desire to create a full Center dedicated to helping parents, educators and the children impacted by ADHD. I have taken some great steps recently by adding PTS Coaching Tutors to bring together some of the wonderful teachers I have trained with the students who need in-home support from educators who will help them discover how they learn best. (I intend to expand this outside of New York in the coming months).
I am now pleased to announce that I have also added a new associate, Ms. Emily Montaglione. Emily is a New York State and Nationally Certified School Psychologist, and New York State Bullying Prevention Specialist. When I met Emily I was struck by her passion, insight and wisdom. Emily will be able to provide parents with both comprehensive evaluations as well as screening evaluations to help determine what strategies and tools will best help each child. As a trained CSE chairperson, she can also help parents understand the special education process, and what their rights are. She can provide this support in person or via Skype.
As the school year is rapidly coming to a close, it’s a good time to reflect and gleam what you can from what has occurred. Emily has put together a wonderful guide to help you do just that. Please read “How to effectively review your child’s school year”
I continue to be driven by my passion to make sure that ALL children have the opportunity to learn as they need and be valued for the natural skills, talents, and passions they each possess. No child should ever need to feel that they are a square peg in a round hole!
