My name is Allie. I am a pediatric Speech and Language Pathologist, Positive Discipline Parent Educator, and mom of two. I am passionately dedicated to teaching parents of kids who struggle with communication how to transform challenging behavior.
Whether your child has a diagnosed speech and/or language delay or they are young and in the process of developing their language skills, I want to show you how to make Positive Discipline work for you.
How did this become my passion?
When I first became a mom in 2016, I felt overwhelming pressure to do everything right. There was so much to think and worry about and I wanted to make sure I made the best decisions for my baby as he grew up.
I stumbled across the Positive Discipline approach while doing some crazy new mom research and everything just clicked! While I loved how the principles aligned with research in child brain development and placed relationship building as the core foundation, I felt that most of the strategies were very language-heavy and geared more toward older kids with developed communication skills.
I realized, however, that I had the unique ability to take my Speech and Language background and integrate it with my Positive Discipline training in order to make the concepts and strategies work for my early communicator.
While every day is far from perfect, I now have the knowledge to make choices that will positively affect my children’s overall behavior and emotional development.
And now I want to help you build a life with your little ones that you truly enjoy.
So happy you’re here!
