Our mission is to help children who are struggling to communicate in a meaningful way, find and use their voices through intentional movement to express their inner thoughts and become all they are meant to be.
A learning process where we inspire voices and empower bodies! The simple fact that you found my website tells me that you are searching for something more for your child. I see you. I hear you. You’ve come to the right place.
Have you ever been in the situation where you just want your child to tell you about their day or how they got hurt on the playground? Maybe you just want them to tell you a story with all the workings of their imagination? Maybe it is as simple as wanting to hear “I love you”.
Society labels our children as non-verbal. It is my belief that our children fully understand the world around them however, their body just doesn’t express what they really know. It is my goal to find a way to reach their voice and THAT is the foundation of the VIBE mission.
I work with your child to help them communicate meaningfully through the use of spell boards, keyboards, writing and wherever possible, their voice. Discovering the pathways that work for your child help create an environment that uncovers and develops their highest learning and growth potential.
Chase has just recently transitioned from spell boards to key board, and then to the laptop where he types into voice assisted software!
Cole is one of our young adults who clearly loves using the spell board to answer age appropriate questions
Communication skills can be built with children by adjusting the teaching methods to the child's unique abilities. Here the student is using her eyes and facial expressions to answer questions.
Stopping in the middle of a lesson to work on motor skills helps the student to strengthen the body-mind connection. Empowering the body actually inspires and builds communication skills.
"My family had a great opportunity to work with Ms. Amanda McDaniels to see if RPM sessions would help to improve the communication of our 5 year old son with autism spectrum disorder. Our experience with Ms. Amanda’s PRM practice was an absolute success. Our son actively participated in each session with high interest and attention. Ms. Amanda was able to quickly understand our child’s likes and abilities and find a way to keep his attention during each session. We have noticed that after each session our son had an immediate improvement in communication and thoughts expression, he was more open to having a conversation. Our child was looking forward to each new session, he was excited about meeting with Ms. Amanda for his new lesson. I would highly recommend Ms. Amanda’s services to family and friends."
"Amanda has truly been a blessing to our family. New Orleans has needed this service option and she is a perfect provider for the job. She is an awesome communication partner / therapist for our son Chase, who loves her as much as she loves him!"
