Parents are worried.
Kids are confused.
The country has lost over 400,000 people to COVID-19. The pandemic, mask-wearing, learning from zoom has caused most to say ENOUGH.
One year ago in February 2020, COVID entered the USA. Within days, news spread throughout the United States as each state was added to the list of infected communities. In a frenzy, we sought ways to protect our health.
Finding masks to protect became the next best defense. Stories about what and how to “act” were fast coming as the story; the virus, its mystery, and problem grew.
One year later, we face a tough winter. And most recently, scientists shared new information about a deviated version of the deadly virus. YIKES! What’s a family to do?
5. February is Black history month. Founded by Carter G. Woodson, this year we celebrate Feb 1 – Feb 28. The month commemorates a celebratory acknowledgment of achievements by and about African Americans, the culture and history.
Use the month to learn something NEW daily.
Share and collect findings. At the end of the month gather what you have accumulated. Donate the information to a local shelter, library or school in need of resources.
Stay Well! Remember, this too shall pass.

“Amy is like Oprah – she’s the neighbor you love who is very, very smart”— Parent of 14-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter
“Amy talks about moving children from being externally-driven to internally-driven…and she helps you get there!”— Parent of 15-year-old daughter
Amy knows how to relate to children, and make them feel comfortable . My son was shy at the beginning but Amy asked him a couple questions about what he likes and immediately found the connection to him. He happily followed her in the office (just after a 3 min of conversation) and preformed the test. He wasn’t nervous or scared and it’s bc of her ability to relate to kids.
We had a great experience and he wants to go back! Thank you very much!— Dad of 5-year-old assessment client
