Wow! Attended this seminar last Saturday and wanted to THANK the presenters and Kerry Yates for putting it together.

Very good use of a precious Saturday morning as the presenters addressed exactly the issues we are facing with an 11th grader planning for college.
Join The 7 Nightingales Center: Support Groups, Life Skills & Community Building for their support group, the 3rd Thursday of every month. Let them know you're coming this evening at 7 p.m. (cost: $5 per meeting), email: [email protected].
Kerri: thank you for being authentic and for being brave, and for reminding me that even extremely painful situations can lead to growth and love, if we allow this. Also, I greatly appreciated your list of items, especially the part explaining why people do NOT want to receive advice when they are engaged in a struggle. You expressed this beautifully and as I read it, I understood it completely and recognized it as pure and true. I will try to always remember this.
Love you so much; you will overcome this, with the Lord's power and grace.

It's time...

Several clients and I have discussed this recently. Think about this question deeply, you may find that you are making a choice rather than being subjected to FoF. Amazing.


I just spotted this comment from a friend of mine. She is amazing. I can't tell you the number of people I work with because of unhealthy environments or leadership at work. It is a legitimate reason to seek change, and then to contribute to and create what you want. Well done my friend!


This. Is. Me. For those who know me and have shared my long journey... please find a work family that fills your cup like this one fills mine. Don’t settle for an environment that is simply tolerable most days. Don’t settle for disrespect.
I know why you stay. You stay for the co-worker next to you. I did. You stay because it’s familiar... even if completely uncomfortable. I did. Don’t be like me. Don’t waste years. Do better. You CAN work with respectful, kind, caring, happy, and genuine people. You owe it to yourself to go find them now! Leap...and the net will appear.


Sometimes simple questions are a Pandora's box; what kind of change do you want? What do you want? Are you relying on others to make it happen? Are you relying on luck or are you playing chess? What would change if you changed your approach? How would this impact your resilience, your outlook? What might happen? What other questions come up, and which ones do you want to answer...


If you aren't doing proper Keyword integration on your resume, it most likely isn't being seen by human eyes. Please, if you are looking for a job, master this process. It is critical to succeeding.


Take a deep breath. Drop your burdens and enjoy your 2019 growth in 2020, every single bit of it.

How Do We Connect Student Evaluation With Meaningful Intervention? 09/17/2019

How Do We Connect Student Evaluation With Meaningful Intervention?

How to link Executive Function Evaluation With Meaningful Intervention?

I like this quote: "A complete evaluation should identify if the EF weaknesses are skill-based or performance-based. A skill deficit means the student does not know how to perform the desired behavior, while a performance deficit means the student knows the skills necessary to perform the behavior, but does not consistently use them."

How Do We Connect Student Evaluation With Meaningful Intervention? A neuropsychologist explains brain development, how Executive Functioning evolves, components of evaluations, and how best to support students' challenges.

The Dreaded Small Talk
Hey all!

I hate making small talk. I feel awkward and I never know what to say to people other than "Hi how are you?" and pray that they ask the next question.
If this sounds like you, you probably also try to avoid these situations or quietly leave early. But oftentimes small talk is unavoidable, so I do want to tell you the 2 key things I do when I am in situation where I have to make small talk.
Ask questions. Then, ask intentional questions.
My mom is the “Question Queen”. As soon as you answer the first question she asks another. It might seem counterintuitive to keep asking someone questions and not wait for them to reciprocate, but it works and it can keep the conversation going.
My mom doesn't just ask random ask random questions the entire time. She actively listens to the other person’s answers, and then chooses to ask more about a subject the person seems interested in. This is intentional question asking.
Next time you talk to someone, pay attention to their body language and tone and use that as a guide for how to navigate the conversation.
Lastly...everyone likes to talk about themselves, AND, for the most part, people don’t care to listen to you as much as you think they do.
BUT, if you can humble yourself and dive into intentional question asking and active listening, it might help make small talk a bit less awkward and a bit more enjoyable.
I want to also share this amazing video from Charisma on Command for “How to Handle Small Talk as an Introvert”. All videos on the page and Youtube channel are absolutely amazing.


Out of the Nest #5

Hey all!

I want to take a break and talk about self-care.
I have a confession. I have not been taking care of myself recently. I haven’t been sleeping well, took a few days off from the gym, I’ve been stressed and it shows in every physical way possible, and well, now I have a cold.
I am at a point where my body feels weak and yet I continue to push through, going to work, trying to get things done, coming home and watching tv til it’s time to shower and go to sleep and repeat the cycle.
We all forget to take care of ourselves sometimes, even if we don’t realize it immediately, and it takes a toll on our physical and mental health.
It’s important to NOT wait until you are in a state similar to mine. You can practice self care all the time, or every week, just make time to do it regularly.
When I’m mentally and/or physically stressed, or when I just need a break, I do some of the following:
- Have a solo spa night with a glass of wine
- Buy a petite bouquet of flowers at Trader Joe’s
- Walk on the beach
- Go shopping
- Cook my favorite dinner
- Go for a drive

I’ve also started practicing mindfulness meditation as part of my nightly routine, which helps with stress and anxiety.
So check in with yourself often, take care of your body and your mind, and above all stay healthy.
Here’s a great 10 minute guided mindfulness meditation:

Til next week…
