A Letter From Debbie

Hi Friends,

I know what’s it’s like raising bright & quirky kids – it starts with the struggle to figure out what’s going on. How can they can be so highly capable in some areas and struggle in other areas that typical kids find easy?

At first you’re not sure where to look for answers. As a mom on this path, I read countless books, took various trainings, consulted with various professionals, tried different treatments, classroom interventions, conversations with teachers, and had many sleepless nights.

Then gradually, through trial and error, and interviewing the top experts in the field, I found an approach that works.  It’s a structured process of experimentation to find what works best for the unique way your child’s brain is wired. This is the approach I use with my own kids and with my clients.

I’m going to share it with you in the IdeaLab and also make sure you have access to all of the summit recordings, Q&A with experts, and the latest info in the field.

Over time I learned how to find the lane of thriving for my kids. We know how to adjust the knob when things aren’t working and we know what kind of supports to get in place when rough patches pop up. We also know on what things we just need to be patient and let maturity and development work their magic.

In the IdeaLab, you’ll get the village of professionals, strategies and support that I wish I had about a decade ago. If I can make the journey easier for you, that’s an excellent investment of my time.

There is no doubt in my mind that every bright and quirky child can have a beautiful life that works for the way his or her brain is wired. You just need the tools and strategies to help it unfold.

I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed, confused and deeply worried. I can help you out of that place, along with a community of people who get it and really care.  That's what the IdeaLab is all about. Let’s work together and run experiments for your child’s success. Just click the button for your free trial below and I’ll see you there when we open for our fall cohort.

quotation marks

"Absolutely INCREDIBLE! Bravo for setting these fantastic speakers up and providing and avenue for busy and taxed parents to attend. I have learned so much in a few hours than I have pouring over books and visiting multiple health professionals over the past few years. I’m watching this late due to illness, blessed it was still available. Thank you so much!!!"

-Alice, 2019 Summit

"I love the positive, life affirming guidance these talks provide. These ideas and tools work for all humans 🙂 Thank you so much for pulling this together, and sharing it. This is vital and an amazing gift for our society."

-Anna, 2019 Summit

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’ve followed many of these experts for the last few years, but have still found new gems of wisdom in these talks. I have sticky notes with “a-ha” moments and memorable quotes piling up. This is great! Inspirational! I’m a better parent already."

-Julie, 2019 Summit

"This summit is the best online summit I have had the pleasure to attend. The caliber of expertise is amazing. The content so specific and spot on. I am a teacher of young gifted children. I am fortunate enough to teach at a progressive school who practices much of what has been said here. How wonderful to have such a rich resource for anyone who works with these amazing kids!"

-Laraine, 2019 Summit

Just believe in yourself.  Even if you don't, pretend that you do and at some point, you will.
