Award-winning author of the book, “Anti-Autism,” and National Child Entrepreneur examiner who co-chaired the largest event for preschool administrators in San Diego history, Adelaide “Home Office Mommy” Zindler is the anti-autism coach. With children born 23 years apart, she’s been featured on ABC and Fox News for miraculously restoring peace to pre-schoolers with special needs when their teachers, psychiatrists and adult-strength manner medication couldn’t. At five years of age, Adelaide’s own Junior Apprentice developed a blog and website and was interviewed as one of the youngest to start a business despite her special needs. Together they are passionate about seeing parents override negative labels to develop thought leaders. Her family invites you to attend a $1,950.00 live training intensive for free!

What are you working on right now?
After getting so many comments from parents asking how they can do what the Junior Apprentice does, I am developing junior mastermind, which enables parents who work from home to experience the rewards of integrating their children into their passions and developing the next generation of thought leaders too.
3 trends that excite you?
1. The home office becoming the fastest growing business sector in the nation.
2. The attention we are getting from Costco Connection magazine, Entrepreneur magazine and corporate America, who is now scrambling to attract parents who work from home to help them survive.
3. The ability we have to override negative labels like autism, the national epidemic of preschool expulsion and our failed public school system, and to develop the next generation of thought leaders from our home offices.
How do you bring ideas to life?
They bring me to life, starting when clinicians launched my practice by asking for my help with a high profile case that they couldn’t fix. I didn’t and still don’t have a degree in medicine of any kind,and was miraculously able to see the child and parent restored to their God-given place of peace. The medical community saw something in me that I hadn’t seen.
What is one mistake you’ve made that our readers can learn from?
Hiring a high-powered publicist to take my message national when the media doesn’t want to hear from a middle man. They want to speak with the expert directly.
What is one book and one tool that helps you bring ideas to life?
That would first be the Bible and second HARO (Help a Report Out). Together the tools provided in these resources are putting me in front of the key players that are taking my online and offline presence to higher ground.
Are you saying that autism is a lie that we are labeling our most gifted learners with to dumb them down?
Yes! Based on 12 years of coaching children with “special needs,” I have seen up close the impact of overcrowded classrooms, from preschool to high school, that are designed more for herding cattle than developing lifelong learners. It’s like I heard a former professor turned billionaire say, “If you trace the end result of public education in every culture on earth, the goal would be to develop university professors.” The rest in the class get labeled and medicated in some form. The brightest are not just overlooked, but dumbed down wherever possible. These have mostly been my clients.
How can you relate to parents with special needs children on a personal level?
Aside from spending the past 12 years coaching parents who have to work from home because these children don’t often fit into the large group model, I have two special needs children of my own. My 28-year-old was found to have an IQ of 147 and could read at two years old. I am not willing to have my 5-year-old tested after what my son went through. Yet instead of being labeled and medicated at five years of age, she has her own blog and website and she has started her first business venture, too! So as a parent needing alternatives, I’ve been there twice now.
