CHRISSY DAGOSTINO

EDUCATIONAL CONSULTANT 

 AND PARENT COACH

Parenting and homeschooling towards emotional intelligence
with insights from the field of relational neuroscience. 

ABOUT ME

I have been supporting parents in the process of deepening and transforming their relationships with their children and re-thinking traditional educational approaches for their children for over 15 years.

I hold a Master's Degree in both early childhood and special education as well as training and certification from The International Council on Development and Learning (ICDL), The Brazelton Touchpoints Center, The Fitzgerald Institute of Lifelong Learning, and I hold a certification in Applied Educational Neuroscience.

I consult with families, homeschool programs, schools, and non-profit organizations, and present parent workshops and professional development for educators across the country. All of my work is guided by research from the field of relational neuroscience. 

 

As a homeschool consultant, I guide both new and experienced homeschooling families in designing a homeschool program that embodies their unique educational philosophy. Together we will create a  foundation for your homeschool program that is rooted in relationships, regulation, respect, and rhythm as the foundation for all learning. We will explore curriculum best suited for your child, learning supports and accommodations needed, and a daily, weekly and monthly routine that provide a sense of rhythm to support your child's grounding in the day.

 

As a parent coach, I will invite you to notice the interactive patterns that have been developed in your family and guide you to re-shape these dynamics using relationship-based, positive parenting strategies so that you can enjoy a rich and nourishing relationship with your child.

BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION

Custom packages

Together we will look beyond the behaviors your child is struggling with at home, in the community, or at school to better understand the unmet needs or undeveloped skills behind them. We will explore your child's unique sensory, communication, and emotional profile to tailor respectful supports that honor these needs while building capacity for regulation and positive behavior changes. 

Consultations with school programs are also available.
