Speaker: Sunette Payne
As parents we often have great goals in mind for our children, we want them to become the best unique individuals that they can be. We want them to be happy and successful in their academic pursuits, socialization, and general development. But what can we do to help them in this, or in fact is there anything that we can do to globally help them to strive toward their potential? Please join Sunette as she discusses neurological organization and how to progress and propel your homeschooler with learning difficulties to reach their goals and potential.
Sunette graduated as an Occupational Therapist from the University of the Orange Free State in South Africa as the valedictorian of her class. In the United States, she worked in the rehabilitation field for over 10 years, with her focus being brain injury and stroke victims. She fulfilled her role as Brain injury team leader and later as OT team leader for the Inpatient rehabilitation facility. Sunette’s life changed dramatically when she learned that her son would be born with a congenital heart defect. She stopped working full time as an OT and focused her full effort on helping her son develop and learn, and started her journey as a homeschooling mom. Since her son needed help she persistently searched for the best possible way to address his needs, and after many hours of research chose the National Association for Child Development to help guide her in helping and homeschooling her son. Sunette now works with the NACD, while homeschooling their 2 children and delights in helping other children reach towards their unique potentials using NACDs neuro-developmental perspective.
