ADHD and Learning Strengths Dr. Victoria Waller

I just loved being on the podcast with Kate. Her questions and insights into my book and work were amazing and we probably could have talked for hours more!

I look forward to doing more with her. I think I’ll have to hop on a plane from Los Angeles. Very funny!
She is fabulous!

Thank you so much for this wonderful podcast and I’m ready anytime to do more.
Love, Vicki

Kate Gets It!

I had such a wonderful time chatting with Kate on this podcast. As a mom, Kate really gets it, and she asks such relatable questions that bring so much value to her audience. She’s so easy to chat with and so easy to listen to. If your struggling with sensory challenges at the table, but sure to check out the episode: A Mothers Guide to Expanding a Child’s Food Choices! 💗
