Do you want to make a difference or make a Brain Difference?
I think we all want to make a difference, to have a positive impact on others, to know that what we do matters.
My family and I have been blessed with a village of kind, caring, committed family, friends, educators, medical professionals, and colleagues who have made a difference in our lives - helping us navigate all of life’s celebrations and challenges.
Along the way we have learned a lot about ourselves, including our brain differences - like ADHD, dyslexia, anxiety, depression, adverse childhood experiences, trauma, and PTSD.
I have discovered that individuals with brain differences often need more than caring supportive people who want to make a difference. We need people who can make a Brain Difference -- people who are able to apply learning, curiosity, compassion, and empathy to take informed action which intentionally supports and empowers individuals with brain differences.
Current research and statistics indicate that 1 in 10 people have ADHD, 1 in 5 people have dyslexia, and 1 in 5 people experience mental health difficulties. We all know, work, learn, and live with people who have brain differences. Advances in neuroscience, cognitive science, and psychology have transformed understanding of brain differences. Despite good intentions, uninformed efforts to support individuals with brain differences are often unsuccessful and can even be harmful.
Brain Difference tutoring, coaching, and consulting services are grounded in evidence-based practices for literacy, learning, change management, and brain-based differences like ADHD and dyslexia.
I love learning and am excited to share my current understanding to empower you to make a Brain Difference for yourself and others.
