About Us

Welcome to TLC Educate!

We are Drs. Kevin and Anala Leichtman, co-founders of TLC Educate. With over 20 years of combined experience as educators, we are dedicated to providing resources and products that make a meaningful difference in the lives of children and their families.

Our Story

Our journey began with a shared passion for education and a deep commitment to supporting children with diverse learning needs. Both holding PhDs in Curriculum and Instruction, we have spent our careers developing and implementing innovative teaching strategies tailored to children on the spectrum. Our professional expertise is not just theoretical but grounded in years of hands-on experience in classrooms and educational settings.

Our Inspiration

Our greatest inspiration comes from our own family. We are the proud parents of an autistic child who brings us immense joy and happiness every day. Our personal experiences have profoundly shaped our understanding and approach to supporting children with autism. We know firsthand the unique challenges and beautiful moments that come with raising a child on the spectrum.

Our Mission

At TLC Educate, our mission is to create a supportive and inclusive community for families with autistic children. We offer a carefully curated selection of sensory and stimming products designed to enhance comfort, promote relaxation, and stimulate positive sensory experiences. Our products range from sensory swings and fidget toys to weighted blankets and calming tools, all chosen with the utmost care and attention to quality.

Why Choose Us?

  • Expertise and Experience: With our academic backgrounds and extensive teaching experience, we bring a deep understanding of educational best practices and sensory needs.
  • Personal Connection: As parents of an autistic child, we are intimately familiar with the joys and challenges of parenting on the spectrum. This personal connection drives our dedication to quality and relevance in every product we offer.
