Rebecca Wise-Eklund

I'm Rebecca and if you've landed here, it might be because a child in your life is struggling. Maybe it's with learning. Maybe it's with some intense behaviors. Well, I've been there as both a parent and a teacher. And sometimes I'm still there. Frustrated. Angry. Feeling like I'm failing my kids. Feeling like I'm a bad parent or a bad teacher.

If you feel like you're on a long and winding road and are feeling tired of the motion sickness, you've come to the right place.

I'm here to help you. I am a parent to children with neurodiversities. I understand learning disabilities and ADHD on a very personal level. I've been at the dinner table trying to modify a homework assignment to stop the flowing tears. I've been faced with the intense dysregulation that ADHD often brings (that not everyone knows about). I've been at the school trying to explain my child is actually really an amazing human.

I've also been the teacher eager to help the struggling child. I loved teaching the children who others "didn't get" because I understood them. I saw them. I've been the teacher writing the IEP's or collaborating on the 504 plans because I taught both general and special education. I've seen how a teacher can make a positive (or negative) difference for a child.

This is my life's work. Since college I've been working with individuals with diverse abilities, starting with my summer as a camp counselor at an Easter Seals Camp. I remember the first time I "communicated" with a camper who did not communicate with traditional verbal language. I was in tears and she smiled because, not only did we communicate, we connected.

 

I went on to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. My classroom teaching experience spans four states and includes teaching special education grades K-12 for students with ADHD, ODD, anxiety, learning diversities, Autism, Down Syndrome, and complex body needs, including to teenage boys in state's custody and general education grades 2, 3, 5/6 combined, 7/8 math and language arts combined. My other experiences include creating assessment blueprints for a testing company, developing community literacy programs, serving as a Cubscout leader, a job coach, a testing coordinator for a charter school district, and as a recreation leader for our community members with neuro and physical diversities.

Whew! That's a lot. And it is...and this is what I'm offering to you. A lifetime of experiences to help you navigate parenting a child, at home or supporting them at school.

I've been where you are...overwhelmed. I've searched for support, help from someone who could offer expert guidance. I needed someone to talk to, so I could figure out the next steps, the best course of action. I needed to be able to sleep at night. This is what I'm offering ... reassurance, guidance, hope, support, and solutions. If you have a child struggling and you are struggling too, reach out at rwe@accessivate.com and let's start working to make things better, life smoother, and your home calmer.
