I'm Debbie, an educational consultant, special education advocate, and owner of Who’s Learning Now, LLC.  I've worked in the field of general education, special education and child development since 1993. I'm on a mission to help one million children be seen for their abilities, not their disabilities and I'd love the opportunity to support your community as a guest speaker.

 When it comes to our children, we are all better together.

Workshop Testimonial

"Debbie Sharp has presented workshops on Preparing for Preschool and Kindergarten to our parents and early childhood staff. Debbie is a wonderful facilitator as she is able to address subjects in a way that brings in her life experiences as a parent while also articulating the knowledge she brings from years of education and experience. Reviews of Debbie’s workshops are always positive. Parents find her easy to talk to and feel they receive answers to their questions that are practical and doable.  Debbie is always a pleasure to work with and I learn something new each time I hear her."
