Family Coaching

LDS Family Coaching pairs guardians and parents with our trained coaches to provide guidance, strategies, tools, and mentorship to help you best support the learning needs of your child.

Coaching can address your family’s unique needs as you strive toward a calm and connected home life while navigating your child’s learning needs – including online learning needs during the pandemic.

Our goal is to support you as you develop the knowledge, tools, and techniques to set your child up for success.  

Our current coaches include Melissa Sager and Carla Carvalho. Please see Our Team for their bios.
