Dianne CraftDianne Craft
Dianne Craft is a former homeschool mom who has 25 years’ experience teaching children who struggle with learning. She received her bachelor’s degree in Special Education from St. Cloud State University and her master’s degree in Special Education from the University of Northern Colorado. She is also a Certified Natural Health Professional. Discovering the reason for children’s struggles with learning and behavior has long been a passion of Dianne’s. Some children struggle because of a “glitch” in the processing of information (sometimes referred to as a learning disability). Others are affected by ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, sensory integration issues, autism, Asperger’s syndrome, Down syndrome, and Turner’s syndrome. Dianne approaches these problems in a unique way, applying the latest brain research as well as expertise in the biochemical factors that contribute to children’s behavioral, attention, and learning struggles.
