About Me

My name is Mary and I have been home schooling for over 12 years.  I have always home schooled both of my children.  Home schooling has been the best thing for our family and especially for my son with autism.  Over the years, I have researched and utilized many types of therapies and educational approaches (including ABA/DTT/Verbal Behavior, neurodevelopmental therapy, speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, diet, supplements, chelation, neurofeedback, social skills therapy, Relationship Development Intervention (RDI), Linda Mood-Bell Visualizing & Verbalizing, Fast Forword, and more).  I have incorporated components of many of these therapies into my son's home school program.  I decided to offer my services as a home school consultant for families interested in or already home schooling their child with ASD, PDD, Aspergers, or any other autism-related disorder because so many families that I've talked to are not satisfied with their child's current academic progress or social experience and I believe that I can help. 

I encourage any parent who is thinking about home schooling to give it a try.  Do your research, make a plan, and ask for help if you need it.  You know your child better than anyone and you can do it.  And remember, it doesn't have to be a forever decision.  Many parents home school for a few years to get their children up to speed academically and to work on social skills in a more controlled setting before sending their children to school.  As author John Holt says, "To rescue a man lost in the woods, you must get to where he is."  We must start with where our children ARE, not where they should be.  If they are not succeeding academically and socially in school, then consider bringing them home where they can experience academic and social success in a comfortable environment.  For some children, just being removed from the stressful school environment allows them to focus their attention on learning instead of surviving. 

I am here to help, so please don't hesitate to contact me if you need to know what to do next.  As far as references are concerned, I have many satisfied clients and you can read some of their testimonials on this website.  I am also listed as a Special Needs Consultant with Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and have been consulting families of children with and without special needs for many years.  I can also email you references from current clients -- just send me an email.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, simply email me.  I hope to hear from you soon.


My mission
To help families find the support, guidance, and hope they need to teach their children with Autism Spectrum Disorder at home.
