The Center for Neurodiversity is dedicated to offering help for kids who have a different way of thinking–and learning.

Patty Iverson, Director

 Patty is a graduate of the University of California, Davis and holds Elementary and Secondary School Teaching Credentials in Washington and California. She taught in the public schools as a full-time teacher of art and reading, and as a substitute teacher for all grade levels. She has also provided care to dozens of infants, toddlers, and pre-K kids as the owner of Sunflower Kids Child Care. She recognizes the early age at which neurodiversity becomes evident, and appreciates the unique qualities of every child.

Her current focus on dyslexia and the unique needs of students who have a different way of learning was inspired by working with her grandson.

She is an entrepreneur who appreciates the advantages of neurodiversity in our culture.
