Hide and Seek

For many children with unique needs and challenges school looks and feels very different.  Rather than a happy place of learning, school can feel difficult, confining, and frustrating.  With larger classroom sizes and with criteria thaschools have to meet each year, schools
face real challenges in helping children with unique learning styles and special needs. 
At Wideningthedoors.com, our goal is to help facilitate solutions for parents and educators alike for the benefit of all students.  No child should ever feel overwhelmed by school.
