I am Julie Principe. I have 36 years experience as a Classroom Teacher, ELL and Inclusion Teacher from Kindergarten to grade 8. I wrote individual education plans, worked with families, students and school teams. I also mentored other inclusion educators and worked with some of the most challenging (and interesting) students in two school districts. I am the mother of two adult sons: one with an ADD and Autism diagnosis, and the other is neurotypical. I have a deep understanding of what it takes to support and to nurture independence and success, both professionally and personally across a range of ages.

I can help you…

  • advocate for your needs or the needs of your child.
  • support you to advocate for yourself.
  • liaise with school.
  • learn your executive skills strengths and challenges.
  • identify goals.
  • set goals.
  • make an action plan.
  • implement the steps in an action plan.
  • strategies to deal with obstacles as they arise.

My realistic approach is STRENGTH-BASED and reflects current neurodevelopmental research.
