Hello all learners and parents!  My name is Mandy and I teach classes designed to help children reduce stress and anxiety.  I have 18 years of experience using techniques that are research-based and proven to aid in mind/body relaxation.  My goal is to help children learn to cope with and manage strong emotions through techniques they can use throughout their lives.

My academic background is in Clinical Psychology.  I have both a B.S. and M.S. in Clinical Psychology and have 20 years of experience working with youth.  I have worked in a therapeutic setting since 2004, teaching social skills groups, ADHD management groups, relaxation exercises, and play therapy sessions.  I have years of experience creating and facilitating children's social skills groups, as well as developing some of my own materials that were used in those groups.

As a psychometrist, I have extensive experience administering comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations and cognitive rehabilitation assessments, including vision therapy and neurofeedback, with children and adolescents.  I have worked with a wide range of diagnoses (ADHD, learning disabilities, physical disabilities, Autism Spectrum disorders, Dyslexia, behavior disorders, etc.), ages (age 2 to adult), and intellectual levels (severely delayed to gifted). 

During my time on Outschool, I have taught over 10,000 students, and have been blessed to meet so many learners from different cultures and walks of life. I have also frequently worked with neurodiverse learners both on Outschool and in private practice. My goal as a teacher is to meet students where they are at, as well as celebrate their differences! I will always teach one student classes, so that parents do not have to worry about cancellations.

Homework
Frequency: available upon request
Feedback: available upon request
Details: Homework will only consist of practicing the techniques learned in class. Students will be encouraged to practice skills with their families first, and then branch out to peers. Practice will be relatively minimal and not required.
This class is designed to support all types of learning needs, including students on the Autism spectrum, ADHD, and neurotypical students.
This class is designed to be taken independently, although I suggest enrolling in my 1-1 Social Skills class if you would prefer an individualized approach.
