The Neuro Leap Classroom

Become each child’s development expert

Can your early childhood classroom use a neuroscientist? A fairy? A therapist? A miracle?

Are you wondering which approach to use to best address each students’ behavior challenges, bring out their potentials, lay the foundation for future academic success, promote social skills, infuse the day with play, curiosity, and exploration, while meeting curriculum standards, all within considerations for each child’s unique needs?

Have you ever asked yourself: Is it sensory, behavior, social-emotional, cognitive… and what to do next?

How do you balance it all while maintaining a positive classroom flow?

Join my course for a game-changing perspective.
