Our speakers

Learning Outside the Lines with Jonathan Mooney

The future of education is in flux and equity for atypical learners has become more challenging than ever. Join us as we chat with writer and activist Jonathan Mooney about how parents and educators can adapt to meet the different learning needs of all kinds of students.

Jonathan Mooney has been a nationally recognized advocate and speaker for neurological and physical diversity for two decades, inspiring those who live with differences and calling for change. He has published three books: “The Short Bus,” “Learning Outside the Lines” and “Normal Sucks.”

SOS for Parents in the Trenches with Debbie Reber

Behind every kid who is differently wired is likely a frustrated, isolated, even burned-out adult. In this practical and actionable talk, Debbie Reber shares 10 powerful “tilts” (a.k.a. practical ideas) to help parents shift their thinking and actions in a way that will help them feel more confident and peaceful about their everyday reality, create a stronger family dynamic and give their extraordinary children what they need to thrive.

Debbie Reber is a parenting activist, New York Times-bestselling author, keynote speaker and founder of TiLT Parenting, a website, top podcast and resource for parents who are raising differently wired children.

Getting to Calm While Pandemic Parenting with Laura Kastner, Ph.D.

Keep calm and carry on even in the midst of a pandemic. Join us as we chat with nationally recognized author and speaker Laura Kastner, Ph.D, for tips and tricks on how to keep your parenting cool — even when it feels like the world is on fire.

Laura Kastner, Ph.D., has conducted research, maintained a clinical practice and presented numerous workshops for parents. She is a clinical professor in both the psychology department and the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of Washington. In addition to her academic articles in the fields of child, adolescent and pediatric psychology, Dr. Kastner has authored and co-authored five books, including the popular title “Getting to Calm.”
