Helping Children and Adults Overcome Barriers
My practice is focused on helping children and adults who struggle with learning disabilities (LD) or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). An evaluation will help determine which is present in an individual and to what extent. The latest in neuro-science research is then used to design remedial and therapeutic methods.
It is not easy for people with ADHD or LD to achieve in school or life in general. I know this from personal experience, coming to the United States from Sweden when I was 7.
First, I had to learn English quickly because I had no friends and really missed the one’s I left behind in Sweden. Learning to read English was a challenge, but my first grade teacher had endless patience and saved me from drowning in the world of words and speech. I also struggled with lack of attention and distractibility (no one knew about ADHD at that time). By the time I got to the third grade, in a bi-lingual school, I earned an award for the best student in the class.
This experience provides the backdrop for the professional skills I bring to bare in working with my clients. Having experienced ADHD and learning challenges, I help people navigate the challenges they face with humor and compassion and hope. My compassion for them comes first with an understanding that goes beyond any skills I learned in graduate school.
