Learning Support – For Parents

Learning Support For Parents – Academic & Social/Emotional Learning

Parents can be inundated with information about their child’s learning from report cards and Individualized Learning Programs (IEP’s) to psycho-educational assessments, and designations for learning exceptionalities.
It is no wonder parents can feel overwhelmed and uncertain about exactly what to do with recommendations and how to provide the support their children need.

Lindsay Sealey, B.A., M.A. Ed. has been actively involved in academic and social/emotional learning support for over 15 years and she is now offering parent support for post-assessment, post-IEP, and post-designation/diagnosis to help parents navigate their child’s growth and development. Lindsay aims to move the discussion and ideas around children’s learning and growth to practical and realistic, actionable steps. Lindsay’s focus is strength based and action focused and in collaboration with parents.

Learning Support For Parents Includes:
  • An initial consultation to learn about your child’s development and educational history and to understand your child as a "whole child" in context including: emotional, social, academic, physical, and mental growth
  • The creation of a customized learning support plan – well-researched, centred on your child’s unique strengths and abilities, supporting your primary concerns and challenges while being mindful of your relationship with your child
  • A follow up consultation to review the action plan and fine-tune ideas and strategies to prepare you to feel empowered and equipped with specific step-by-step guidance
  • Subsequent follow-up sessions, as often as you need, to discuss how the plan is working, to celebrate successes, and to make any necessary changes
