Counseling Services at Colonial Heights Baptist Church
Life is not always easy. A painful past, a difficult present, or a hopeless view of the future can be hard to overcome. It can never be done completely without Christ’s healing in our own lives. All of us have been wounded in one way or another, but Jesus Christ has promised to make us all into new creations….but only if we are willing! (II Corinthians 5:17) Sometimes we just need someone to guide us as we are in the process of becoming that whole new person. The counselors in our Counseling Center for Abundant Living are here to help.

Dianne Craft
Does your child not process phonics sounds? Does he reverse his letters? Is his writing sloppy? Does he make his letters from the bottom up? Check out Dianne's website, I especially recommend the Biology of Behavior CD set to get started with Dianne's programs if you think your child has signs of ADHD behavior.

HSLDA Special Needs Consulting
Home School Legal Defense is seeing a growing need among our members for support for families who are homeschooling children with special needs. Our Special Needs Department has three coordinators available for consultation who frequently assist members with issues directly related to homeschooling children with special needs.

HSLDA understands that parents may need help in educating their children with special needs. Our coordinators often provide homeschooling families with names of educational consultants, therapists, tutors, testers, counselors, educational diagnosticians, and other experts.

When members contact our office to request referrals, we use our consultant database to search for consultants who will best suit their needs.

We are seeking to expand our database to include more home school-friendly psychologists, educational consultants and professionals who specialize in working with special needs children.

If you have recommendations for specialists who fit this need, and who you think would like to be a part of our consultant database, please send us their contact information, as well as any details about their services.
