What Parents Are Saying

When school and sport activities moved online due to Covid, Rylan did not handle it well. He has always been a social butterfly but online he clammed up and became extremely anxious. Many tears were shed!!! I don’t know what sort of magic you have Lara, but watching Rylan in Kids Corner he is back to his pre-Covid self! He is always excited to talk about the sessions and I love hearing him scream “I am strong” at the top of his lungs. I actually caught him trying to teach his younger sister the self-esteem chants the other day! ! Thank you!!!!!

(About working with me 1-on-1 through the Lead n' Learn program): It’s been great. I feel like Lara has been more helpful in her strategies and the time we’ve had together than any other professional that I've worked with. With all the experience that she has, she's able to offer suggestions and strategies that I can’t think of because I don’t have the knowledge or extensive experience. I don't know what I'll do when our time together is over! 

S. Foster

(Message to me about Kids Corner): Hey, thank you! He had fun today once again! He sooo looks forward to kids corner all the time. Thanks for literally bringing some sunshine into his day :)

About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Lara. I'm 32 years old and live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I'm a Special Education Teacher with over 10 years of experience with kids and teens with special needs. I recently left my classroom teaching position to pursue my true passion and calling. I now work as a coach to help support kids with Autism and their families. I've always been a big believer in play-based learning and social-emotional learning. I have created a program for kids ages 5-10 that focuses on that. Kids Corner has been my baby for the past couple of months. I can't wait to see what it turns into, and all the kids I will meet and have an impact on along the way. I am also an avid fitness enthusiast, and enjoy dancing and doing HIIT-style workouts.
