Founder and Owner Shelley Karpel,
M.S.W., Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Shelley has been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for over 30 years. She founded Access to Achieve after developing and successfully implementing Executive Function strategies for her son with ADHD. She worked through the school system, in a constructive manner, to get his needs met. She also coordinated with other professionals who were involved. Shelley deeply understood these struggles from a personal perspective and had used her professional expertise to help her son. She passionately desired to help others and started working with students and families as an Executive Function Coach and Case Manager.
During that time, she built skills and implemented personalized compensation strategies for students at school and at home. She worked with parents to support their children's challenges. Shelley soon found that there was a great need for this service and in order to accommodate the many requests for help, she joined with other professionals to develop a team of Executive Function Coaches. She now shares this knowledge and methodology with these team members through ongoing teaching and supervision. She speaks on Executive Function topics.
