"My child is so much happier. The household is so much happier. The IdeaLab has been invaluable."

IdeaLab member Tereza shares, "I became a member of the IdeaLab and suddenly all kinds of light bulb moments happened...Being a member, I got the confidence to pull my child from public school. We found another school that was a goldmine."

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 our high-touch IdeaLab membership is all about. Let’s work together and run experiments for your child’s success in the IdeaLab. Just click the button for IdeaLab membership below and I’ll see you there when we open for our fall cohort.
