Sarah Howard: ConsultationExecutive Skill Support
B.A., B. Ed. (Licensed B.C. Teacher), M. Ed. (Special Education, Executive Functioning)

Sarah Howard develops solutions for neurodiverse individuals in a changing world.

At Mosaic Education Solutions, Sarah recognizes that a “mosaic model” of education, remediation, recreational, vocational and therapeutic services best serves neurodiverse individuals. Mosaic works in collaboration with licensed BC Psychologists, schools, service agencies, individuals and families to provide consultation services, Executive Skill Coaching and Academic Strategy Support.

Sarah created Mosaic Education Solutions in 2008 after seeing the need for a connection between people and resources. As a big-picture thinker, Sarah thrives on creating specialized plans for individuals, taking into consideration their interests and unique strengths.

Solution-focused, Sarah likes to find concrete, step-by-step solutions that are easily executable, often by connecting pre-existing resources into a new model.

Sarah brings to the table a wealth of education and experience. She has completed a Bachelors Degree in Arts at the University of Victoria, a Bachelors Degree in Education at UBC, as well as a Master’s Degree in Special Education at UBC with a focus on Social Emotional Learning and Executive Functioning.

As the former director of Eaton Learning Centre (ELC), Sarah worked in conjunction with licensed BC psychologists to administer A and B level measures, write clear, functional psycho-educational assessment reports, and provide follow-up services to hundreds of families throughout British Columbia. Families appreciated Sarah’s unique ability to communicate the results of a psycho-educational assessment report in a manner they could easily understand.

Sarah has also worked with Fraser Academy as Director of Transition Services, helping prepare students for transition from high school to the work force or post-secondary education. In this role, she also trained staff in best practices for students with learning difficulties.

Since starting Mosaic in 2008, Sarah has worked with hundreds of individuals from late elementary well into adulthood.

On a more personal note, Sarah has learned a great deal from navigating the public and private K-12 and post secondary education systems in BC as the mother of a neurodiverse individual. She now realizes she is likely “neurospicy” herself 😉
