Compassionate Guidance

The Journey

Dyslexia Coaching - empowers students to harness these abilities, fostering a mindset where dyslexia is seen as an asset, not a limitation. Through personalized strategies and compassionate guidance, we aim to elevate our learners’ confidence, enabling them to excel academically and in life, celebrating the distinct advantages of thinking differently.

The Method
At WHILDE Coaching, we embrace each student's unique journey, integrating the WHILDE Method to foster a nurturing educational environment that prioritizes well-being alongside academic achievement.

The Approach

Our approach is rooted in the belief that every learner's potential is limitless when supported holistically—through personalized strategies that cater to their individual needs, aspirations, and well-being.

Parents, we understand your challenges


The Complexities

Navigating the unique journey of Dyslexia, we fully recognize the complexities parents face while striving to support their child's distinctive needs. We know the path ahead may not always be a clear view.
At WHILDE, we hear from numerous parents, each expressing a passionate desire to deeply understand and nurture their child's unique perspectives and capabilities.
The Strategies
These narratives consistently highlight a yearning for effective strategies that champion growth, foster independence, and a community that genuinely appreciates neurodiversity.
The Students
At WHILDE Coaching, we see each student for who they are and connect their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social aspects to their success in school.  We champion a tailored approach to education, celebrating the individuality of each student's journey towards personal growth and learning.

Our sights are set on transforming the way education is perceived and delivered.

The WHILDE Method isn’t just a framework—it’s a paradigm shift. This complete overhaul brings together Behavior, Aspiration, Interests, Nutrition, Exercise, and Sleep (B·A·I·N·E·S) to deliver unmatched educational excellence.
The WHILDE Method is your golden ticket to the educational revolution. Forget the cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all system. This isn’t just about facts and figures—this is about creating resilient, adaptable, and confident students.
Real learning and development occur when students are supported in all aspects of their being.

Lets Connect!

Billing FAQ

Our billing system allows for recurring monthly payments with the option to pay in advance for prepayment discounts.

  • First invoice:

The first invoice is billed and must be paid in full within 48 hours of the start of coaching services and will be calculated for the number of sessions for that first month. For example: If a student is scheduled to start on the 8th of a month, an invoice will be generated once the schedule has been agreed to for all scheduled sessions from the 8th to the end of that month.

  • Subsequent invoices:

Subsequent invoices will be billed for the following month on the 15th of each month. For example, the invoice for March sessions will be issued on February 15th. If a student’s first session with WHILDE starts after the 15th of a month, then the partial month and the following entire month will be invoiced.

  • Recurring payments:

Families must allow recurring payments when the invoice is created on the 15th of each month. This means the family's credit or debit card will be charged automatically for the upcoming sessions on the 15th of each month.

  • Variable session count:

The number of sessions may vary monthly depending on WHILDE’s vacation/holiday schedule or how the calendar falls for that student's session schedule.

  • Payment methods:

Payments may be made by credit card, debit card, or check.

  • Cancellations:

Families may cancel at any time. However, there are no refunds for any paid invoices unless extenuating circumstances have occurred.

  • Pay as you go:  

Unfortunately, we do not allow this option.  We have found that monthly payments create a more substantial commitment to our Coaching service and enable families to plan financially.

  • Discounts
    1. A family may pay three months in advance and receive a 5% discount on the invoice.
    2. A family may pay six months in advance and receive a 10% discount on the invoice.
  • Missed Payment / Returned Checks
      1. Missed payments will stop services until payment is made. Notification by WHILDE to the Parent/Guardian will be made via email if this happens.
      2. The Family will have one week to rectify the payment. Failure to do so could cause the forfeit of their spot. A $30 fee will be applied to the family’s account in case of a returned check.

At the WHILDE Method, we look for Students and parents who are committed to their Coaching and desire to grow and expand their minds.  Each session is essential, and the Students' attendance is expected.

  • Rescheduling

Life happens, and we understand if you need to reschedule a session; please reach out to us at least 48 hours in advance, and we will work on finding a time that works for you and the Coach.

We do allow one rescheduled session every two months, but after that, we reserve the right to refuse the rescheduling.  Rescheduling is not guaranteed, but we will do our best to make it happen.

Rescheduling will not result in a refund or a credit on your account and is based on the Coach’s ability to accommodate the rescheduled request.  If necessary, a substitute coach will meet with the student to accommodate a rescheduled request.  If the PARENT stops services with WHILDE and a rescheduled session is still outstanding, no refund will occur.

  • No Show

If the STUDENT fails to attend a session or cancels their session without a 48 hours (2 days) advanced notification, the session will not be refundable nor available for rescheduling.

If the STUDENT is late to a session, Coaches will only wait for 15 minutes and will not try to contact the parent. If, after 15 minutes, the STUDENT still has not arrived, the session will be considered a “No-Show session” and is not eligible for rescheduling. I understand the Coach will not return to finish a session after that 15-minute grace period.

In cases of unpredictable circumstances, please discuss with WHILDE to determine if any flexibility can be made to accommodate a missed or canceled session. In all cases, no credits or refunds will be distributed for missed sessions.

Absolutely. If your child is not "feeling" it or your household circumstances have changed, just let us know through email:

Because no refunds for unused / paid sessions will be given, please notify us before the 15th of the month so we can stop the reoccurring invoice.

The WHILDE Method does not follow ALL school holidays. The list below are the days that The WHILDE Method recognizes as days off from scheduling.

We do not directly interact with insurance providers or supply diagnostic or service codes. However, some clients have utilized their Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account (FSA/HSA) to cover coaching fees. As each FSA/HSA provider has distinct criteria and approval processes, we recommend contacting your provider to ascertain if our services are eligible for fund usage.

Clients can request to include WHILDE on their FSA/HSA-approved vendor roster if deemed suitable. Additionally, some families have effectively tapped into their 529 Plan college savings for our coaching sessions. Kindly consult with your 529 Plan administrator to determine if this might be feasible for you.
