Frances Adlam Frances Adlam has degrees in education, counselling and special needs. She has lectured in multiple intelligences and been an advisor for the Ministry of Education NZ. She now works from home in her ‘enchanted garden’ (children’s words) supporting children with learning and behaviour. She focusses on helping all children learn by bridging the gap between a child's current learning ability and their highest learning capability, through the provision of support, advice and resources to families and teachers. She is an experienced educator who believes that all learning issues can be addressed effectively, once properly identified. These learning issues may include writing issues, reading issues, maths issues, concentration issues and behavioural issues.
