Seeking BA Cognitive Studies and Masters in Education
I ran an inhome day care for about 7 years, when my son was little and that all started because he needed some playmates. It ended up as a full time job, which I enjoyed very much until he went to school full time.
About a year and a half ago, I did a training program to be a Neurofeedback trainer and I opened my own practice and am working full time as the owner/technician providing Cognitive rehab with Neurofeedback and Interactive Metronome training.
I decided to get the credentials to back up my job, although technically because I work with a PhD in the business, I don't need one as a tech, however it is important to me and something that I love doing. Who knows, I may just go for my PhD at some point!
Hobbies and Interests include:
Daughter 20, and grand daughter 5 months
Daughter 18, senior this year looking to attend college next fall
Son, 11 in 5th grade loves sports especially baseball and basketball
My experience with children
In my business, I work with children of all ages. I have a large population of children ages 8-12, who have a form of Autism, ADHD or other learning issue. I also see children with anxiety, depression, head injury and Sensory Processing concerns to name a few. I perform Cognitive testing, have learned how to read and interpret results and have also learned hands on training in helping remediate brain processing concerns related to these issues through a non pharmaceutical approach via the Neurofeedback and Interactive Metronome.
I enrolled at Ashford University this past January to complete my BA and earn a Masters degree as well.
