Little Giant StepsRogers, AR
In 1992, Jan started a journey that transitioned her from desperate home school mom of a struggling learner into a master neurodevelopmentalist. With her new knowledge of how to optimize brain function, coupled with her previous experience as a public, private and home school teacher, she understood there was more to education than just technique and curriculum. She found hope for her daughter through The Neurodevelopmental Approach that ensures the brain is ready for learning and has been sharing the good news with all who would listen for over two decades. Today, Jan's passion is teaching parents how to stimulate young brains earning her the title, Brain Coach. Through the years her work has helped children, teens and adults discover their true God-given potential without labels. That work has been life-changing for all those who have applied her brain building principals, making life and learning easier for thousands.
