Trying to navigate school support for kids with ADHD or suspected ADHD can sometimes feel like you have found yourself in a new country…and don’t know the language. As parents, we want to empower our kids to thrive, but it can be difficult if we don’t feel equipped. It is easy to feel lost between federal laws, state guidelines, and school board policies. You turn to Google and are inundated with information, some accurate and some not. It’s overwhelming. We are here to help! In this episode, we sit down with Wendy Taylor, a special education expert, to begin de-mystifying the school evaluation process.
Wendy Taylor is passionate about supporting families to bridge learning gaps, access special educational resources, and create killer IEPs. Wendy is a qualified Structured Reading and Orton-Gillingham practitioner, certified Educational Therapist, Educational Diagnostician, and IEP Coach. She is also the executive director of Learning Essentials and the Special Ed Strategist podcast host. Learning Essentials provides educational therapy, academic coaching, and IEP support.
Any special education expert will tell you that sleep is important in supporting kids with ADHD. Let’s be honest, sleep is important for all of us! That is why we LOVE Zenimal.
