About Kristine Manning
As Founder and President of Parent Learning Solutions, LLC, I serve individuals and communities with a heart of love and compassion. I bring a broad and unique set of skills to augment parent and educator efforts to work with children in their care. I have 23 years of experience in organizational & leadership development and training design, a degree in workforce education and multiple certifications as a coach, facilitator, contract negotiator, conflict resolution and as a trainer. I have 14 years experience working with schools and systems with my own child with learning challenges and I worked with PAVE as a volunteer Parent Advocate.
I also serve as a Director of Advocacy and Military Family Liaison with The Ducere Group www.theduceregroup.org
I am married to Clyde and I have three teen aged girls. Two step-daughters and one biological girl--each uniquely and beautifully talented!
I started Parent Learning Solutions, LLC after experiencing amazing successes with my own child who has special learning challenges. Because it was challenging to learn all the rules, regulations and bureaucracy of special education, I am passionate about helping other parents successfully navigate and potentially avoid some dips and hazards in their child's educational road. I want to help parents be successful working with teachers, schools, medical and other providers in order to obtain appropriate services for their children. In doing so, we then grow healthier and happier families and communities.
25 Years of Great Results!
