What If I Think My Child Needs a Diagnosis?

What if I think My Child Needs a Diagnosis?I have the coolest friends. Sometimes I forget that they are even more amazing in their careers. This is the case with my friend, Lei Rhyne. Not only did she homeschool her kiddos fro several years, is beautiful and funny, she is also a psychometrist… say that three times fast. When she mentioned to me that she helped families who saw their children struggling, I wanted to know more.

Lei Rhyne, psychometrist - What if I think my child needs a diagnosis?

In this episode Lei shares the full process involved of having your child tested and diagnosed, putting your fears to rest. She explains the first meeting with the Psychologist, the fact-finding mission that usually involves a couple of days of testing and observations and the results meeting with both the Psychometrist and Psychologist.

I think one of the best parts about getting a diagnosis from Lei her team at Fresh Start Mind is the fact that in the end, parents will be armed with the information and tools needed to help their child succeed emotionally, socially, and academically.

If suspected that something is not quite right with your child socially, emotionally or academically, you should consider giving Lei or another qualified educational consulting team a call.

Navigating Special Needs Home Schooling

Navigating Special Needs HomeschoolingDo you sometimes feel alone in your quest to educate your child with special needs?  This week, you will enjoy hearing from a mom that has walked through difficult times with her two boys, each with very different special needs.  She will share how God was faithful to send her help and support along the way.

When your children struggle, the challenges of life seem magnified.  When you can share your concerns with someone that has walked in similar shoes, wisdom flows, and you can relax in the journey knowing that God is there for you.  When you have the knowledge of The NeuroDevelopmental Approach for Life, the thrill of progress for your children will keep you and them moving in a positive direction.  There really are answers to your questions that will assist you in helping your children. The Word says to seek and you will find.  I believe God has salvation for us in every area of our lives.

Michelle will share her journey from despairing mom of a child with pervasive developmental delays to victorious mom of the same child that has gone far beyond all prognosis given by other professionals.  Along with learning how to help her first child, she also learned how to release her second child from a teenager in the bonds of ADD medications to successful adult without meds. Her experiences make Michelle God’s perfect choice to support families on the Little Giant Steps’ programs.   You really don’t have to do it alone.

Introduction~ Victory over Adversity~ 1

Welcome my friends! I am excited to be starting on this podcasting adventure with you!

Just the facts ma’am… My name is Heather Laurie. I have a wonderful husband Chris Laurie. We have 5 children and 3 angels.

I have homeschooled our children through their entire education, K through graduation. Right now we are outnumbered by pre-teens and teens but loving this phase in life.

When Chris and I met and fell in love in boot camp we were not saved. As we faced the stillbirth of our second child a beautiful daughter we began searching for God in a meaningful way. Through that harsh adversity we were saved. We also found a church community and a homeschooling community. The Lord was there waiting for us to call out and then He blessed us abundantly.. to this day those blessings continue all my children have a real and meaningful relationship with God. In part due to our loss of precious Sarah.

I know what it is like to homeschool with children that have special needs. Thus my blog/speaking/writing life at specialneedshomeschooling.com I also know what it is like to be mom with a chronic illness. We have a disease called mitochondrial disease and it affects the kids and I. There is no cure or treatment at this time. There is HOPE!

My friends I have been in hospice and spent months in the hospital. I have watched my child struggle with the simplest things like colors and regressed to ‘lose’ the alphabet 3 times. I have also watched those same lovely children become young adults and far exceed doctor’s statistics.

My children have given their heart and soul to Jesus. Sure we struggle and life can be tough while going through storms but I know there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I know together we can knit a community together that supports and encourages us on to be stronger and rely upon the Lord for Victory!
