You became a teacher because you love watching students thrive, but you’re starting to question if you have what it takes to teach such a diverse group of learners.

Learn how to connect with every student and unlock their spark for learning!

The Neurodiverse Classroom online course was created for dedicated elementary teachers just like you who are passionate about educating students of all needs, but who need up-to-date training in order to understand and connect with their students. You also need a community of like-minded teachers to bounce ideas off of while cheering each other on.

I’m Dr. Emily, child psychologist and former school psychologist, and I’m here to help you!

Over the last 20 years, I have seen student learning patterns become even more diverse in addition to an added awareness of the trauma kids experience and their mental health needs. Our standardized education system just does not fit the unique learning patterns of all students. Yet, as a teacher you are asked to educate everyone without the necessary training in child developmental and mental health. 

I can no longer watch passionate and gifted educators burn out as they try their best to help students while not receiving enough funding or training to do their job. We all agree that there are systemic barriers we cannot change, at least not quickly. What I can help you change is your understanding of neurodiverse learners and the relationships you create with them every day to help them access learning. One child at a time. If you want to understand your students better and learn more about how to connect with them in order to unlock their engagement with learning, you are in the right place. 

We will change the system from the bottom-up as we understand, nurture, and celebrate all learners, not just the ones who fit the mold. Together, we are going to merge my knowledge of child psychology and your knowledge of elementary education so that you can help every student unlock their learning potential.
