    Mission

    Tier 3 Montessori Mission & Vision

    Our mission is to increase equity, accessibility, and inclusivity for neurodivergent children in Montessori schools using the science of human behavior and learning, to help them to grow in their own individual capacity, and to assist parents, families, and teachers by presenting compassionate and effective strategies to support children.

    A Word

    From Our Founder

    “As a parent, I have walked this path with four neurodiverse children of my own. As a licensed board certified behavior analyst and AMI-trained Elementary Guide, I am uniquely qualified to support you and your children within their Montessori environments, as well as train and mentor parents, families, and educators in the science of human behavior.  My aim is to acknowledge and validate the concerns you have as parents and educators when trying to best support the children in your care. You do not have to do this big work alone.”

    – Erin Lopez-Brooks
