Feeling like a family in crisis? Fear not we can change that this week
If you’re feeling bad about your homeschooling journey, imagine how your neurodivergent child is feeling. But the guilt ends here. A longtime educator, teacher trainer and your new best friend I’ve seen worse, I promise. There’s no need to buy more curriculum, together we can bring in the fun, curiosity and advanced learning you seek. Ready to get started?
Homeschooling kids who are advanced or struggle to learn
Families with autism, ADHD, and SPD
Homeschooling kids with different ages
Who would have expected homeschooling to be this difficult? The:
Refusal to do barely a minute of work
Frustration, tears, meltdowns, and physical aggression
Staying up beyond tired for a moment of peace
Sleepless nights thanks to fear and worry
Dragging, suffocating feeling of everything being on you
Homeschooling doesn’t have to be this way! And I know how mad that sounds and how much you’ve already tried because I too homeschooled my neurodivergent child. A teacher who has trained other teachers and I couldn’t avoid the beatings, power struggles and deliberately dropped pencils (and anything else they could do to avoid actually learning from me!) So, like you are now I went on a mission to fix the situation – and did.
I am endlessly and so proud of my almost grown child, It’s incredible the observations they make, the things they learn that they are confident to share and the kindness they show to others that they’re eager to help. And it’s not just our family who’s benefited…
"I have a son who is on the spectrum…we were having one [homeschooling] crisis after another. Afsaneh taught me how to integrate learning and his interests, it changed our lives. Tantrums and family fights stopped when I started working with Afsaneh, our family dynamic is now more cooperative, loving and fun.”

Meet your coach
I am a children’s author with over 20 years of experience as an educator. I have taught hundreds of students from preschool to graduate school, including many neurodivergent and unique learners. I’ve trained teachers, written curriculum for K-12, and created programs for universities.
Using my expertise in teaching and knowledge as a PhD candidate in Education, I have developed a proven framework to support you in creating the right homeschooling experience for your unique child.
Now as a homeschooling mom of a unique child, I understand the pressure and how challenging it can be. It doesn’t have to be that way.
I want you to feel empowered to create a homeschooling experience filled with connection and a joy of learning for you and your child. When not working you’ll find me gazing at the beautiful mountains from a home I share with my husband and child – no doubt whilst sipping an iced Matcha Latte – which I love! But, it’s not the only thing I am passionate about, I also care deeply about LGBQT+ rights, self-advocacy and future generations getting the best possible start in life.
So what’s the process?
Step One: Discover the gap between your expectations and where your kid’s at
You can get started with this 3-part video course and actionable journal on understanding, preventing and responding to resistance here.
Step Two: See how to become your child’s trusted learning partner and create the relaxed learning environment you’re after
Supporting a child with sensory issues is only one part, but you can join me in a Masterclass to see how to homeschool children who are easily triggered here.
Step Three: Connect with your child through shared passions as they showcase their advanced learning
You can build your program using the curriculum you already have, or without any at all here.
I love self-directed learning. It’s great as a busy mom, but I also know how unique your family is so, to support you further, I’m available too for one-to-one coaching calls to help fit the material to your needs.
But let’s be honest, if you really are in crisis, you know that now is the time to actually fix your child’s learning experience once and for all as they are only young once. There are no second chances. So you may already be ready for something more than a cookie-cutter program, (however brilliant each of those mentioned above are at moving the needle).

There were a lot of days that everybody cried and I contacted Afsaneh… She was amazing in listening to my struggles, she gave me ideas on how to integrate the educational experience that we wanted to have in our everyday lives and then we would all be happier about the experience.”
