Moms, turn up your ears. I have some super cool and important information for you. (Not to mention a super cool giveaway!)
Does your child struggle with a learning disability or sensory processing issue? Does your child fight you when it comes time to get homework done? Are you ever frustrated with the education system in your town/state/country?
Do you wish you had better tools to help you help your child succeed? Does a loved one struggle with dyslexia? Auditory processing? A.D.D.?
Do you simply want your child to find joy in learning and develop his gifts and become a successful adult?
I know I want this for Peter and Zoë. I know you want the best for your kids too. I'm anxious to see what school will be like once my children are old enough to attend. What will they struggle with? What will be their favorite subject? Who will I turn to when they are having a problem?
I have the answer to all these questions. Her name is Karla Jay and she is FABULOUS!! She is THEE Learning Hawk.
Karla has been a speech pathologist for 26 years with an undergraduate emphasis in special education and psychology. She worked in the public schools, taught in Bolivia, and has run a private practice for the last 24 years which evolved into a non-profit learning center called "U CAN LEARN". The focus of the center is on answering the "why" part of learning--as in, "Why can't my smart child learn that?"
Karla is a triathlete, with great energy and passion. Her passions include: traveling, gardening, writing women's fiction novels and she loves every aspect of children's education.
How great is it that there is someone so darling and smart and experienced out there who has the tools to help your child succeed in school?? And right at your fingertips!
Karla has just launched her new website--THE LEARNING HAWK.com where she addresses all of these issues and more. You can ask her personal questions about your child, watch her videos where she discusses child behavioral issues and learning, etc, etc, etc. She's the bomb! And did I mention she has a great sense of humor?
Look--Here's what's about to go down. You are going to go over to the Learning Hawk and subscribe to her blog. I mean, why wouldn't you? Every child and parent needs help in this arena. There is always room for improvement. And why not educate yourself? Then you are going to go to her facebook page and like it. Next, you are going to leave a comment on my blog telling me you did those two things AND THEN you will leave a question for Karla ON MY BLOG.
What do you want to ask her? Anything about your child's behavior, learning, reading, school, friends--you get the picture.
If Karla chooses to answer YOUR QUESTION you will receive a $100 GIFT CARD TO
A FREE dyslexia evaluation (transferable to a friend if your child does not need it)--1.6 hours of processing testing to determine how your child learns.. (If you live in Utah)
You can still enter the contest and receive the gift card no matter where you live...you just won't get the consultation for your child (unless you want to make the trip).
