I agree with the idea that resilience requires developing skills in the areas of connectivity, autonomy, efficacy, and compassion. I also believe that maturing in these areas is facilitated by our ability to perceive our relationships and environments accurately and reason soundly in order to respond rightly to the challenges we face. Our ability to perceive accurately, reason aptly, and respond rightly are linked to cognitive skills that undergird learning and increase resilience.
As a cognitive development practitioner and critical thinking coach, I am motivated to serve people who demonstrate weak cognitive skills that impede learning and undermine resilience. These weaknesses are experienced in areas of memory, processing speed, visual and auditory processing, attention, comprehension, and critical thinking. It has been a privilege for me to work with a diverse population of people; from creating and implementing an early intervention reading program for at-risk children to preparing and presenting brain health workshops designed to improve memory skills for seniors.
I am a certified cognitive development Mediator implementing Equipping Minds and am certified to teach Psychology. In addition to a Master of Education degree focused on Human Development and Cognitive Psychology, I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with an emphasis on coaching. For years I practiced a Classically oriented, Concept-Based approach to education. Utilizing this approach, I wrote a K-12 curriculum with lesson plans designed to develop cognitive skills and increase critical thinking. My experience using this approach influences my work with my clients today.
Since June 2016, I have completed 160 continuing education hours equipping me to identify various cognitive deficits and choose specific strategies for improving the cognitive disorders presented by my clients. These disorders include autism, concussion syndrome, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, processing disorders, memory disorders, ADD/ADHD, executive functioning, comprehension, and communication disorders.
