I can help.
My Special Needs Navigation Services will provide you with the resources and knowledge you need to confidently and effectively help your children. I know how to effectively navigate clinical care and educational systems, how to evaluate reports, and how to help you prioritize. With this information, you will save both time and money.
As an RDI™ consultant, I work with parents to show them how to teach their children the essential skills that make relationships work. You will learn how to identify problems, and through a highly customized program that takes both your profile and your child's profile into account, you will learn how to teach the missing skills. I also work with teens and adults to help them learn the skills necessary for making and maintaining meaningful relationships.

“More questions about my son's behaviors were clarified and explained in one hour with Dr. Wayland than in 5 years of therapy sessions." C.M., Bowie, MD
"Sarah was able to look at the whole picture of my child.... Her knowledge, background and expertise was invaluable in that she could review all of the reports and evaluations and translate my child's needs into something that I could present to a school committee. After meeting with Sarah, I feel so much more confident to clearly articulate the areas in which my child needs additional support. She took the complicated jargon, broke it down and related it to an easy to follow process with the language I needed in order to work with the school system." J.B. in Hyattsville, MD
"Sarah Wayland has been a wonderful support to our family - Mom, Dad, our 13 y/o daughter and our 12 y/o son both adopted from Russia. She offers true dedication and expertise as a coach towards helping our family achieve healthy, happy and productive relationships. We are very grateful to her." M & M in Potomac, MD
"We are so grateful that someone recommended we get in touch with Sarah! My son had struggled with school from the beginning, and it seriously affected his health and emotions, as well as our family life. Sarah helped guide us through the process of getting more detailed testing done to determine his strengths and learning disabilities. She was an invaluable support throughout the very difficult process of working with his school to update his IEP to reflect his needs, and helped us advocate for our son to get the services he required, which ultimately lead to a new school setting where he is finally happy, and feeling successful and confident in his abilities." M in Takoma Park, MD
