Grandparent Coach:

GrIMG_3208andchildren complete life’s circle of life. So why is it then, becoming a grandparent is not always what it appears? Dr. Elaine thought she would be happy when her grand babies came, and then she realized there was some unfinished business in her own life, and asked…”Where is the grandparent manual?” We are parents first and then even with 9 months of watching and waiting, the day comes and a grand baby is born, there you are with no license or awards to show for your grand parenting skills.

If you are feeling like you are walking on egg shells, and sense turmoil in your life when this is the time to enjoy your life and grand parenting the most, Dr. Elaine, a grandparent of two, is committed to assisting you in finding the peace and bliss of grand parenting, and not just for the sake of the grandkids, but also for the sake of your grandkids’ parents and yourself!

Even though Dr. Elaine didn’t speak until I was 4 years of age, she has made up for that over the years as an invited speaker to large groups at conferences across the globe, as a key note speaker, and to smaller, more intimate pull-out sessions, and groups for parent groups and agencies.

Dr. Elaine’s speaking engagements have taken her around the world, from California – California Speech Language and Hearing Association, to New York City – Autism Society of America, to Stockholm, Sweden for the United Nations- UNESCO, to Vietnam as a member of Bright Futures and the American Academy of Pediatrics in Ho Chi Minh City, to Chicago, Illinois for ASHA – American Speech Language and Hearing Association, and Washington, D.C. for the American Orthodontic Association, and Florida for Florida Speech Language and Hearing Association, to other locations for Head Start, Early Head Start, International Association of Infant Massage, the Department of Education, for the State of California, and WestEd Trainer for Early Intervention and Infant Mental Health in Sacramento, Ca.

As a Doctor of Philosophy in Psychology, and a Masters in Speech and Language Pathology, and a second Masters in Dance/Movement Therapy, her work covers four decades of working from the womb to the tomb – with infants, toddlers, children, teens, young adults, adults and geriatrics with special communication needs, and their families.

Dr. Elaine Fogel Schneider’s goal for speaking is to inspire, bring knowledge, and offer new tools and strategies that will make a difference in the lives of the attendees and make a difference in the world. Her speaking style is engaging, inspirational, and informative.  She has been told by attendees that she inspires, makes them laugh, and think, and has made a difference, not just for the students/ and or families they serve, but for themselves, and their own families, also.

Topics include child development, parent training, and infant mental health, communication, touch and the power of touch, preemie care, including children with special needs into daycare settings, self-esteem building, the technological destruction of relationships, how to be creative in literacy, building strong and independent children, and strengthening the brain and strengthening relationships.



elain-bookDr. Elaine’s desire as an author is to make a difference in the world and in the lives and relationships of those who read her books, watch other materials, or listen to her DVD’s, audio workshops, songs, so all children are nurtured and loved, and trust established as the first relationship is developed and all relationships that follow. Families will thrive, not merely survive.

Her family is a world of comfort for her and her grandchildren especially, so that the care she provides for them may be shared with children around the world, through the materials she develops. As an author Dr. Elaine feels she has a responsibility to bring this information to families everywhere, so that children smile, laugh, and feel love, as do the parents, grandparents, caregivers who care for them.
