Do you or someone you know have a family member affected by neurodiversity? You may be looking for a resilience, life coach for your family. As a family life and resilience coach, I am passionate about helping families navigate the challenges that come with these unique experiences.
I also believe that it is essential to recognize and celebrate neurodiversity as a different way of experiencing and interacting with the world. As an advocate for raising awareness and reducing stigma around neurodiversity, I am committed to empowering families to embrace and celebrate their unique differences.
I believe that recognizing and addressing negative emotions is key to developing resilience and finding a sense of empowerment. Through practicing self-reflection and compassion, I help my clients focus on self-care, devotion, and positive experiences, while seeking support from others who understand and can relate to their experiences. It is important to recognize and address the negative emotions that can come with neurodiversity, such as regret, dread, failure, vanity, hatred, deceit, grief, and guilt. These emotions can be overwhelming and make it difficult to cope with neurodivergent experiences. Additionally, seeking support from others who understand and can relate to neurodiversity can be helpful.
It is also important to recognize that neurodiversity is not a weakness, but rather a different way of experiencing and interacting with the world. By embracing and celebrating these differences, individuals can find a sense of empowerment and community. Finally, advocating for neurodiversity and raising awareness can help reduce stigma and increase understanding and acceptance.
Students with diverse learning needs should be encouraged to trust their brain and persevere until things feel “just right”: where tutoring, coaching, consulting, and training can help them develop their skills, confidence, and independence. I offer coaching classes and what I offer student classes on the following: Dyslexia, other neurodevelopmental differences, diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, family attachment, parenting, language, literacy, ABC’s, breathing, journaling, poetry, Bible study, remembering calm, listening skills, and brain mapping.

What is My Neruopedagogy?
A neuropedagogical approach is a holistic and interdisciplinary approach to understanding how individuals process and learn information. By integrating various fields such as neuroscience, psychology, positive psychology, biopsychosocial psychology, evangelical theology, and education, you are able to develop a more comprehensive and personalized approach to teaching and learning.
In particular, your focus on understanding how individuals process information differently is a key aspect of your approach. By recognizing that each individual’s neural pathways are connected differently, you can tailor your teaching and learning methods to better suit their unique learning style and preferences. This can help to enhance the effectiveness of your teaching and promote greater engagement and success for your students.
Overall, your Neuropedagogy approach represents a thoughtful and innovative approach to teaching and learning that can help to promote greater understanding and success for individuals across a range of different backgrounds and learning styles. For I have found, it’s good to see that you are incorporating various approaches and theories in your work, and that you are committed to promoting optimal mental health and overall well-being. My current practice is a holistic, alternative approach to being that aims to naturally stimulate the brains of all types of learners, not only those with learning differences. It is based on inductive reasoning, logic of evaluation, outside-of-the-box problem-solving skills, detective sense, and wisdom.
If your child or student can’t be reached, seems disconnected, has chronic headaches, stomach aches, hives, low-self esteem, squints when reading, feels behind or “different” than the other kids, has behavioral and learning challenges, is emotionally intense or desensitized, complains, thrives for constant attention, has problems with organization or being on time. Overactive-reads, writes, moves, and thinks extremely fast or slow, has sensory-processing or working memory problems, is overly kind, and is known for daydreaming.
In the context of neuropedagogy, I believe in “prudential personalism” which aims to promote optimal mental health and wellness by improving communication and coping skills, strengthening self-esteem, atonement, and connection with God, and promoting positive behavior. It recognizes that the psyche is the ego-conditioned individual’s “mind,” and that discernment is required to better understand what our educational and health care mission requires of us in response to the particular challenges and opportunities that emerge in the course of organizational life.
Cook’s Evaluation & Cost
A comprehensive assessment of a student’s literacy skills can be conducted by observing the student’s sensory acute response to stress, interviewing teachers, parents, and observing the student’s input/output of motor, verbal, and written behaviors. This information can help you create a more personalized and effective plan for supporting the student’s literacy development. Email or visit http://www.myelbert.com for more information.
NOTE: Those who struggle with literacy will struggle to connect letters to sounds and, mainly difficulties identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words; as well, those with visual processing difficulties struggle to understand visual information such as letters, shapes, or objects and problems processing the graphic symbols (mainly, problems with convergence). Other difficulties related to the absorption and processing of sounds [sounds especially can be omitted from words by the student], students with dyslexia most commonly omit letter sounds, words, phrases in the middle position, then the end, and least commonly the beginning. When they omit, they might do sound confusions such as repetition(s), substitution(s), addition(s) or delete altogether, on the other hand; transversal(s) and reversal(s) are more common in students with a visual processing difficulties.
