1:1 Coaching

for neurodiverse teens,  young adults, and parents

Set up a free 30-minute consultation.

You tell us about your child or family's challenges and hopes, and we will tell you about our 1:1 Coaching process. If we all think it's a good fit, we can schedule a first session.

These free consultations will happen by phone, Zoom, or in person.

Parent Coaching

There are endless resources for parents online, but none that understand the dynamics and values of you and your family. You are unique and so is your child. You deserve advice and strategies that will work for you and a program that can adjust those strategies through the many seasons of life.

Learn how to support your child's regulation, development, school performance, social skills, and independence so you can focus on connecting with them, building their confidence, and watching them flourish.

Coaching sessions are provided by Purposeful Connections owner, Michelle Gaudet.

For teens & young adults

Is your teen struggling in school, making connections with peers, managing emotions, making decisions, or being independent? They may be struggling with executive functioning skills. These are skills that can be improved through specific interventions and applying strategies to improve daily routines. A 1:1 weekly coaching session will target these skills and leave teens with an understanding of how their brain works, how to make life easier for themselves, and the confidence to achieve their goals.
