Dynell's Strategic Academic Coaching
Specialized skill building to address learning challenges associated with teen depression, anxiety, and ADHD.
I am an educational therapist and mom of a high school student with several diagnoses that make school/living tough. I homeschooled my son in the third grade and, more recently, in high school while working full time.
You and I are on the same journey. And, while my professional background prepared me to address his attention and executive functioning challenges, nothing prepared me for the demands of parenting a child who was constantly stressed from school.
Sound familiar? Are you exhausted, worried, or frustrated when talking with your teen about school? Does your teen often lash out or check out? I promise, there is a better way.Learn more about Dynell's journey
Parent workshops and laser-focused coaching. We give you training and scripts to guide the process of Parenting for Connection and Coaching for Independence. The results: You get your life back and instead of feeling angry, exhausted, and stressed, you will feel energized, hopeful, and relaxed --- and proud to see your teen taking care of themselves and their school work.
Weekly coaching sessions for teens help them stay motivated, organized, and on track. With our coaching, teens are better able to identify their challenges and engage in appropriate problem-solving. No more avoidance, procrastination, or work refusal. Our teen groups have a monthly focus, with weekly practice activities that are based on their actual school assignments, so students build skills without wasting time.
Academic & learning skills taught by an educational therapist. Students learn HOW to learn, take notes, study effectively, retain information, improve reading and writing skills, etc. We solve immediate problems and focus on college readiness so teens develop strategies that will serve them beyond high school. All of our lessons are designed and presented for impaired attention, working memory, or production capacities.
The day will come when your teen leaves home. Who do you want to send into the world? A teen with confidence, who believes in their abilities and has a track record of success? Or, a teen who has internalized failure after failure, to the point where they have given up? Are you worried that your teen will not realize their potential? Each school year brings more demanding work, more deadlines, and greater expectations from teachers. The more time your teen spends failing classes and not engaging in school, the bigger the achievement gap grows. And the more their self-esteem plummets. Unfortunately, our education system does not do a good job supporting students who have anxiety, depression, or ADHD. We, parents, have to do something radical to change our teen's trajectory. If you are at your wit's end, attend our free training to see how we help parents and teens achieve lasting success.
