A Proven System for Boosting Your Child's Emotional
and Executive Functioning Skills

Tell Me MORE!!

Raising a child—with, or without additional needs—has never been simple... and it’s not exactly getting any easier.

Are you tired of spending hours researching and wading through a flood of parenting strategies for just one useful tip, and then not even being able to use it?  

How about watching the parade of perfect smiling angel children on your social media feed, while you wonder why your child can hardly stay calm and focused long enough to finish breakfast?

Well, you’re not alone.

We’ve heard parents from all over say the same things, and ask the same questions:

"How do I encourage my child to be more independent and engaged, instead of always depending on me for reminders?"


"How do I help my son stay motivated and engaged, instead of checking out or blowing up?"


"What if my daughter becomes upset at her sister and can’t control her emotions?"


"What will I do if my son’s not able to transition back to school, and falls behind in class? It’s already been so hard with this initial separation."


"I just want to be a great parent, but I don’t know how.”

So, we want you to are a great parent.

Just being here is proof of that. You’re actively seeking a way to reduce the stress in your child’s life, and to help them identify and work past the struggles they’ll see in the future, so they can live a happy, fulfilling, successful life. 

 And we want to HELP you do it!

Together, we can cut through the parenting information overload with a mindful, brain-based system to make your child's social emotional learning really stick while improving their executive functions.

Does it Feel Like...
  • Your child has overly large reactions to emotional issues, either melting down over the tiniest of problems, or the exact opposite... withdrawing entirely, and refusing to come out of their room
  • You’re worried about your child’s ability to make friends, because they need so much improvement in their social skills, even before quarantine cancelled everything social.
  • You stay awake almost every night, anxious about whether you’re missing something important, or somehow failing your child.
  • You’re overwhelmed and confused with the endless rabbit hole of definitions, jargon, and competing parenting strategies out there.
  • The tools and courses you’ve tried that seem to work for other kids don't seem to "stick" with your child. The problems don’t go away… sometimes, they even get worse.

If you’re nodding your head right now, we have some very good news for you.

What if...
  • You could finally know what’s going on in your kid’s brain, so you could understand how they learn, what’s getting in the way, and how to get around it. 
  • There were dependable, tested, brain-based strategies that you could seamlessly integrate into your busy day, that would help your child with emotional and behavioral challenges thrive? 
  • You had access to proven tools that will help your child learn easily, love fully, and move through the world with more success and joy? 
  • You could see your child learning to manage big feelings and behaviors, while flourishing socially and academically?
Well, you can. Instead of reading all the parenting books, tracking down all the research-based programs, and struggling through a million different ideas to teach your child social-emotional skills ...
This is the only tool you need to support your kids' emotional intelligence.

Now, you might be thinking to yourself “Uh, who is ‘we,’ exactly?”

Hi, I’m Elizabeth Sautter, and for more than 20 years, I’ve been helping children find their voices, both figuratively and literally. Since 1996 I’ve been many things: a speech and language pathologist/social cognitive specialist/coach, the Co-founder of Communication Works, author of the book Make Social Learning Stick… but my most fulfilling role has been as a mother. Before I had children, I thought that my personal and professional experience was going to equip me with all the tools and strategies needed to raise healthy, happy, well-adjusted children.

But, what I discovered was that when things got more tricky, the tools stopped working. My boys were pushing me away. It wasn’t until I took some time to reflect, and started practicing mindfulness that I began to understand the need for a stronger foundation for implementing the strategies I knew could work. I realized that I was coming from a place of fear and control and when I practice mindfulness and self compassion, I can approach parenting with intentionality, which in turn MAKES THE strategies STICK! I needed to bring together the knowledge that I had with that underlying philosophy.


Hi, I’m Dr. Rebecca Branstetter. When I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2004 I was lucky enough to already know what I wanted to do next. See, I’ve always been passionate about helping children, especially those with additional needs. And I’ve learned that in stressful times, a child will be protected if they are connected. So, to connect with as many students as I could, I became a school psychologist. 16 years later, I’m an author, teacher, and the founder of the Thriving School Psychologist Collective™, a training course and support system that enables hundreds of school psychologists across the country to serve thousands of families. 

I’ve made it my special mission to help thousands of additional needs and special needs families navigate the obstacles of emotional and behavioral learnings, equipping them with practical strategies that actually work


We’re not just friends (but we’re that, too).

Being able to geek out together about science, data, and our real-life experiences as parents has been transformational for both of us … as therapists, and as moms. Now, we’re elated to share what our research shows is effective, and how you can model it to your children to build their self-regulation, social communication, and executive functioning skills. 

We know this program can help you, and we are so pleased you’re here to learn about it.

I am excited and feel empowered to have gained methods to develop a better understanding of social learning. My perception and understanding of social and emotional learning has been positively enhanced. This will carry over to my relationship with my kids, and particularly my 11 year old - who struggles socially."


Elizabeth and Rebecca are incredible!  They took so many sound and valuable resources that I have heard about, read or seen over the years and streamlined it together in this course.  It was like a huge melting pot of strategies and research-based information about how the brain works and how people learn and organized it in a systemized, bite size ways to make it simple to absorb.  The journal is practical and needed.  It’s a reminder that we need to slow down and do this for ourselves.  This is just what everyone needs, so thank you!"


Thank you for putting together a very timely and well-thought out parenting course. With the constant distractions and demands of modern living, it is easy to get into auto-pilot mode for parenting with heavy focus on getting things done and stay there till social-emotional issues and challenges start showing up. This course helped me pause, analyze, reflect and arm myself with simple everyday WISE strategies that I can add to my daily/weekly routine to improve the quality of my interactions with my tween and my teen. I feel confident this will elevate the energy of the house and help reduce conflicts. Thank you for taking the time to do this."

See you inside!

As a mother of two children, one neurodiverse 10 year-old and one neurotypical 3 year old; I have read many, many parenting books, taken numerous parenting courses, been through professional support services in the public and private sector and so much counselling. To say that we feel we've "tried it all" would be an understatement! We have gained knowledge along the way and formed a good idea of our parenting philosophies but one major factor was missing: the application! This course helped me bridge the gap in so many ways. There were so many "aha" moments to make it stick! The supplemental resources were so helpful. I can't to recommend to other parents/caregivers."


Elizabeth and Rebecca are a wonderful combination of energy, expertise, passion, and keeping it real. They use all they've learned in their careers with children and in their roles as moms to create this comprehensive course that combines practically everything I've ever read about in my own work as an educator and as a mom of two highly sensitive children. I especially love their very tangible, user-friendly handouts that made putting my own self-care and the practical tools for kids into practice. I also love that they acknowledge the reality of the challenges of parenting through their own stories, while speaking to the teachable moments that they've used, and that I can use, to create powerful shifts in our interactions with our kids to make social learning stick! 

I would highly recommend this course to other parents and caregivers."


The Make It Stick Parenting course provided me with new information that I hadn’t received from other trainings on social emotional learning and executive functioning. It gave me hands-on takeaways that I could apply in my home immediately, including concrete tips on what to do in challenging moments, and how to better prevent them from happening in the first place.

It also offered a parent’s perspective and information on self-care that I hadn’t considered before, with materials to help me implement and prioritize a manageable self-care routine. Elizabeth Sautter and Rebecca Branstetter are a powerful team, and offer both personal and professional insights for a variety of age ranges. I’m grateful for the information I have learned!"
