Are you a parent or a tutor?

Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best they can possibly be.

– Rita F. Pierson


It is difficult to navigate this world on a good day, more so if you have special needs. We help parents as well as their child to overcome these challenges.


Caring for a child one-on-one is a major step forward in their quests to completely become a part of this world and live a free and independent life.


It is extremely difficult to find the right person to work with your child. We aim to find you the perfect match for your specific needs so that you may move forward.


We treat you as a family and your child as the individuals that you are. We know that no situation is alike and that your needs will differ from others.


It is a very stressful time when you have to find someone that can help your child. We take this anxiety away from you and replace it with peace of mind.


Help your child develop confidence by increasing their skillset so that they can go into the world without stress and live life to their fullest capabilities.

She has the compassion and dearness to get to know the child on his/her level; she is excellent at setting safe and essential boundaries for the child to develop socially and emotionally.
