SUMMARY

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 you don’t know the language. Between federal laws, state guidelines, and school board policies, it is easy to feel lost. 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.

AFFILIATE INFORMATION

We talk a lot about emotionally healthy kids, and sleep is a huge part of that! That is why we LOVE Zenimal. When bedtime rolls around, we use this screen-free meditation tool for EACH of our kids (really, we do!). It’s fantastic for kids who are feeling anxious or need a little help calming their busy body before bed. The best part? Each meditation ends with the most beautiful message: “You’re a good kid!” Use our code: TCC for a discount.
