As a time management educator in a private practice, Marydee Sklar has helped families struggling with time management for almost twenty years. Her unique approach to teaching time management comes from two perspectives. As a reading specialist she knows the importance of teaching concepts in a hands-on, visual, sequential, manner. Second, her own brain has significant executive function deficits, so she understands the challenges from the inside. Once she solved her own time-management issues, she developed a course to help others.

While Marydee Sklar wears many hats, her favorite moments are helping parents and children who are struggling.
