ADHD, Autism, SPD, Giftedness

Parents are supported to implement evidence-based skills and strategies to help their child succeed at school, at home, & in relationships.

Pre-Academic Skills

Available to all parents.

 Young children who develop pre-academic skills are more likely to succeed academically once they enter school, have better chances of succeeding later on at school, and carry the skills with them as they grow older.

Children with ADHD are significantly behind their peers by year 4, hence providing them an early boost in pre-academic skills helps their future academics.

Parent training in pre-academic skills is focused on learning effective and fun ways to incorporate learning into everyday interactions and play:

  • Dialogic reading

  • Gross motor and fine motor exercises

  • Strategies to support transition to school

  • One to one correspondence 

  • Phonics

Approach

As an Occupational Therapist, life coach and parent, Yvonne has integrated these skills to provide high quality, client-centred, and holistic services.   Expertise in these areas is combined with the latest evidence-based information to offer effective and practical strategies. These strategies help parents overcome parenting challenges, support their own well-being, and empower them with skills that enable them to help their children reach their potential at home, at school and in relationships.  

These services are available to all parents and families.
