Your child's amazing, that' a no brainer! Let's help them be the best they can be, together! Whether it be working 1:1 on communication challenges, engaging in fun activities to increase social skills development or implementing strategies to ensure school readiness...Mindful Early Learning will help!
Meeting Developmental Milestones
Following a Routine & Teacher direction
Social Relationships with Peers
I work collaboratively with families to strengthen areas of need while incorporating a mindful approach to create and navigate the space between where the child is and where they want to be.
I meet families and children where they are and help them grow together.
For over 20 years I have worked with children...Infants, Toddlers, Early Intervention as well as Severe Special Education (teaching with an emphasis in Autism). And during that time I have found one thing to be true of all children; all children want to be successful and accepted for who they are right now.
I have lived and worked in Monterey and Santa Cruz County my whole life and have a vested interest in the opportunities our children get during their formative years. Being a parent of a child who has Juvenile Diabetes I am a part of our Special Needs Parenting Community here in beautiful Santa Cruz as well and understand just how important it is to have our children thrive. Being a Severe Special Education Teacher and a parent of a child with a chronic health condition I have a deep understanding of the IFSP, IEP, and 504 Plan process.
I truly believe we can work together with this goal, giving support and resources to one another, and know someone has our back. My goal is that I can be of service to children and families in the community and we can work together to create a wonderful future for your children.
