Hi! I’m Dr. Melissa Felkins-educational psychologist, former public school teacher & counselor, and homeschool mom of 10 years to kids with ADHD and other learning differences.
I’ve met so many parents who know that homeschooling is the right choice for their kids who have ADHD, because it allows them to create a learning environment and educational experience that is individualized to each child’s needs.
However, these parents often feel alone, lacking a supportive community of other parents of kids with ADHD who are facing the unique challenges of homeschooling these students.
They may be overwhelmed with the amount of curriculum and information that is available and have trouble getting organized in a productive way.
And---the one that bothers me the most---many of these parents fight feelings of inadequacy in really providing their kids who have ADHD with a solid educational foundation.
Listen, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to do this alone! There are thousands of other parents who are going through the same experiences that you are.
And there are many, like me, who are veterans at homeschooling kids with ADHD and want to come alongside you to support and mentor you through your journey.
Together, we can sift through the overload of information and help you clear a path for your child’s success. You’ll be so relieved to finally feel confident in your ability to homeschool your child with ADHD.
My ADHD Pathfinders Series is a growing library of Success Modules (courses) that focus on specific topics that parents who are homeschooling kids with ADHD face every day. My experiences as a researcher and homeschool mom, combined with daily interaction with thousands of parents in my ADHD Homeschooling Support group, give me a unique perspective from which to address the challenges of families who are homeschooling kids with ADHD.
You'll gain a deeper understanding of how your child's brain works and how you can better support them in learning and in life. Plus, you'll have access to practical tools you can implement into your homeschool day to hopefully make life a little easier!
As a parent who is homeschooling a child with ADHD, you already recognize that a one-size-fits-all educational approach is not going to work well for them. But, that doesn't mean that you magically have all the answers and know how to provide them with everything they need. I know that you want to learn everything you can to help your child reach their full potential.
My ADHD Pathfinders Series is here to help you gain valuable background knowledge about both homeschooling and ADHD, add tools to your parenting and teaching toolboxes, and help you forge a path for your child where their exceptional strengths can be celebrated. And you will gain the confidence you need to know that you are fully capable of guiding your child's education.
