Highest Potential Pathways: Assisting Families Through Their Special Needs Journey

Highest Potential Pathways: Assisting Families Through Their Special Needs Journey

On today’s episode of Life at EASe we are speaking with Pam Beron regarding her coaching business, Highest Potential Pathways, where she focuses on assisting families through their special needs journey. Pam is a veteran special education teacher of 14 years. She earned her Bachelor's degree in Special Education Curriculum and Instruction and Master of Arts in Education specializing in behavior analysis. When her teaching career brought her to a virtual school, she began to fully realize the impact of coaching parents in order to best support their child with a disability at home so they can reach their highest potential. Pam coaches parents through some of the most challenging aspects of parenting a child with a disability: processing a diagnosis, learning about programs and resources available and choosing which ones best fit their family, navigating school systems with referrals and IEP processes, community involvement/inclusion, and home systems of support. Her mission is to empower parents to become their own best advocate for their child.

Pam plans to launch a course titled ‘Pathway to Your Best IEP: A Parent's Guide’ in July. Life at EASe listeners may use this link for a promotional offer Course Waitlist ! If you are interested in working with Pam please visit to book a free 30 minute exploration session. Once you are on her website you may take a look at the different options you have in terms of services. You may also follow Highest Potential Pathways on Instagram @highestpotentialpathways where you’ll find helpful tips and resources.

Creating an Inclusive Worship Community with Rockpointe Community Church, MI

On today’s episode of Life at EASe, we are speaking with Rockpointe Community Church in Sterling Heights MI about the importance of creating an inclusive worship community with Pastor Mickey and Kim Ryder. Mickey Badalamenti comes to Rockpointe via the business world. It was in this environment that he honed his project management and leadership skills. In responding to God’s call to move into full-time ministry, Mickey brings with him these significant assets. He also brings a passionate and articulate zeal for Truth that comes from being a former skeptic himself. Mickey is also the Campus Coordinator for Detroit Bible Institute, which is sponsored by a consortium of local churches and hosted at Rockpointe.

Kimberly Ryder is a busy homeschooling mother of four. She has a bachelor's degree in Interior Design with minors in Teaching and Art. Her passions for learning, education and people have led her to engaging in the Bridges Program at Rockpointe Community Church in Sterling Heights MI, where she has served for the last 7 years. Using both her formal training and personal Homeschool Education experience, she teaches the special needs students in the Bridges Program. While teaching the students planned lessons and engaging with them individually, she shares about God’s love for them and their intrinsic value in a relatable way.

You may reach Pastor Mickey at and Kim at directly about the Bridges Program. Feel free to check out a presentation we at Early Autism Services created outlining how to set up a more inclusive space. Education For Welcoming Families With Children With Autism To A Worship Community If you would like to reach out to us with consultation requests please email us at
