Whether at home, in school, or out in the world, all kids face challenges. No matter the choices, changes, and opportunities young people encounter, Free Spirit has had the same mission for nearly 40 years: to provide children and teens—and the adults who care for and about them—with the tools they need to think for themselves, overcome challenges, and make a difference in the world.
Today more than ever, young people need social and emotional guidance. We aim to meet all kids—babies, teens, and everyone in between—where they are (not where we wish they were) and to support them in developing their talents, building resiliency, and fostering a positive outlook on life so they can reach their full potential.
You can use our books to tackle tough topics such as anger and stress management, childhood and teenage depression, anxiety, grief and loss, juvenile justice, and conflict resolution. And sometimes our sound advice includes a sense of humor to help kids with school success, self-esteem, friendship and social skills, and more.
Our Self-Help for Kids® and Self-Help for Teens® books and other learning materials are practical, positive, pro-kid, and solution focused—not watered-down adult content.
Free Spirit Professional™ books for educators complement our books for kids by providing educators with a complete offering of resources to improve teaching and learning. We offer a wide range of free resources too!
** I help others improve communication, cognition and learning with tech-savvy strategies, solutions and support**
Everyone has a unique set of strengths and weaknesses when it comes to literacy, learning, thinking and communicating. I’m here to help you figure out how to leverage the benefits of technology to overcome barriers in these areas! By matching your needs or the needs of someone you know to features and strategies that can support strengths, I can help you thrive in school, at home, in the community and at work.
Through my practice, Innovative Speech Therapy, I offer state-of-the-art local and long-distance therapy, coaching and training programs. My mission is to help you and those you care about become more tech-savvy and confident that you are aware of the many resources that can be used to reach your goals, reduce stress, and promote happiness!
Over the past 30+ years as a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist, tech-entrepreneur and mother of 4 children of my own, I’ve developed a system that works to help individuals of all ages and abilities who have attention, communication, literacy and learning challenges.
I am always looking for ways to use affordable technologies that will help others get more out of life. So many of us are focused on just getting through the day, it is often difficult to take a step back to figure out if there is a different approach that may dramatically change everyday tasks and routines to make them more efficient and effective.
It’s hard to learn more about new technologies and strategies that may be a perfect solution when you don’t even know what to look for! That’s my job. I do my best to stay well informed of the latest accessibility features and tech tools. Together we will explore how to implement technology to achieve your goals.
