School, Education, and Homeschool Support
Now is the time to thrive
TheraThrive offers school, education and homeschool support.
Our consultants really get the learning differences in the neurodivergent populations, including the differences in children who are autistic, have ADHD, have specific learning disabilities, are gifted and/or are twice-exceptional (2e), where they are both gifted and have another diffence, such as a specific learning disorder like Dyslexia (as classified in the DSM IV-TR). School, education and/or homeschool support can include attending school meetings, IEP and 504 Plan support, personalized curriculum plans, tutor referrals, and other resources.
School and Education Support
Many parents, teachers and school administrators do not understand neurodivergent difference and neuroatypical development, including particular traits and challenges and how these challenges might look in the classroom, and how to support a neurodivergent child who also has learning differences.
Our goal is to support you such that your child has a school and educational experience that promotes growth, learning and well-being. We support parents, teachers and school administrators to understand the unique learning, social and emotional differences of your neurodivergent and/or highly sensitive child or teen.
We tailor our support to your specific needs. For example, we might offer information about neurodiversity and high sensitivity, we might provide assessment testing and/or help with understanding of school or other assessment results, or we might offer teachers insight and a few tools for managing classroom behaviors, or whatever the situation calls for.
Depending on the need, we might speak with a teacher over the phone, write a report or a bulleted list of recommendations, meet with school staff or join a parent conference, observe the child in the classroom and playground, or attend an Individualized Education Plan meeting (IEP) or 504 Plan meeting.
Parenting neurodivergent children is usually no piece of cake, and many families decide to homeschool because their intense and highly sensitive children may have been misunderstood at school, or just simply do not fit into an educational system that focuses on standards and norms that just do not match up.
Neurodivergent homeschoolers are a rising population in the United States, and as a result there are greater pools for resources and community support. As homeschooling becomes more mainstream, option for parents have increased, and since homeschooling is completely customizable by nature, it is a great solution for many families whose children do not quite fit into the traditional educational system.
At TheraThrive, we get the challenges of meeting a neurodivergent child’s academic needs, and we have over a decade of homeschooling experience to support you with homeschooling your amazing child. We understand that being in charge of your child’s education can be daunting to think about, yet we also know that there is an active and supportive homeschooling community filled with dedicated and caring parents, likely including more like-minded peers than your child may have experienced in a typical school setting.
