I have reinvented the conversation about children with disabilities so that school personnel take ownership and pride in providing an appropriate program. Just ask my clients...

Virginia was the game changer in making things right for our son and his challenges with school. We did everything that we thought we were supposed to do, but soon discovered that it was way more complex. We were completely lost in the shuffle of the system, knowing our rights, and stress of the unknown. Virginia was able to point out things we would never have known about, explain it clearly, and hold everyone accountable in this journey. We trust her emphatically and consider her a part of our family and close circle. We could not have made it to where we are in support of our child without her.  KC (Austin)

Virginia Spencer was wonderful to work with. She went above and beyond to help my child. If it weren't for her expertise, we would not have been successful in my child's placement. She came up with ideas that I never would have thought of. She is truly amazing, I highly recommend her. AK (Houston)

Virginia is very caring and knowledgeable. I would not have been able to fight the school for services without her support! CS (Georgetown)

How can Parent Management

Training (PMT) help me?

"I need help parenting my child: I'm at my wits' end because

my child disrupts everything. I want to hide out in the bathroom."

Learn to help your child with effective strategies based on science-based parenting programs. I have worked with clients to find, and strengthen, their children's motivation, reduce misbehavior, set smart goals, discover what works and maintain change over time. 

Parents, your child may be impacted by the challenges of ADHD, ODD Anxiety or Conduct Disorders. Defiance in young children can be managed before it becomes a conduct disorder. If it is not addressed, you may experience a discipline spiral. Don't wait until high school to address self-control and performance issues.


Put your child in a good position to succeed at home and school by completing and learning management techniques. No more walking around on eggshells at home, or in-school suspensions. PMT increases positive relationships within the family and 80% of parents report that program completion significantly improves their child's


It is never too late to create life-changing habits and tools, so call me today. I work with parents of 2-14 year olds in 50 states.
