"As a family we’re blessed to have  been introduced to Stephanie.  She is a warm hearted and gentle soul who instantly developed a positive bond with my son.  She has a special connection with kids, is positive, re-affirming and really listens to them.  My son absolutely adores Stephanie and she's been a fabulous sounding block for him, helping him to express himself and develop many tools to assist in life.  She also takes the time with us as parents to help us understand how our son is thinking or feeling, and what we can do as a family to make positive changes.  We very much appreciate that Stephanie makes the extra effort to provide us with useful resources and mediates between kids and parents.  We also have her book, "Buckle Up" which is a smart and fun way to teach self control.  It's engaging for kids, light hearted yet has such a good message.  It makes it really easy to start conversations with kids about choices and control." - Sherry W

"Stephanie has been in a blessing to our family in helping one of my boys with social anxiety. She has been providing our son self-regulation sessions from a young age to now to help him deal with his social anxiety as he's becoming a tween. Stephanie has been providing him and us with tools to help him identify, cope and deal with situations where his anxiety may be triggered and also teaching to become more resilient. He has come a long way and we are so excited to see the accomplishments over the years with his group one-on-one sessions. Her new book Buckle Up, is very much enjoyed by both my boys. Especially now during COVID, when it's such an emotional-confusing time for kids, dealing with anxieties and social distancing from our family and friends. Buckle Up encourages children to share how they feel in situations where the road may get bumpy, how to cope with it and also to see that there is a rainbow at the end of a stressful situation. Stephanie gently guides the children through all the red, yellow, green emotions in a fun, yet sensitive way. Stephanie Scott genuinely has a loving caring way to connect with children, her warm smile always leaves our son feeling positive and confident to continue work on his goals for his next session with 'Miss Stephanie' I would definitely recommend Buckle Up to all educators and parents to help children deal with self-regulation and anxiety especially in this time of pandemic." - Sandra W

Stephanie bonded with both boys and supported them in many areas including self-regulation, anxiety, daily routines and social skills.  Our family enjoyed having Stephanie in our home which often included support during family celebrations and milestones. Our boys both have neurodevelopmental disabilities that present in very different ways. Stephanie was able to adjust her support methods and apply strategies that best met their individual unique needs." - Mary Ann
