Vanessa Kahlon, the Founder of Kahlon Family Services, LLC and Kahlon Family Services School (KFS School), has been making a significant impact in the field of education, parenting, and social emotional learning. With her extensive experience, dedication, and innovative programs, Vanessa has been transforming the lives of countless children, families, and educators.
At Kahlon Family Services (KFS), the team genuinely cares about helping children who are struggling in our traditional education system. Recognizing that every child is unique and deserves personalized strategies, KFS offers a range of services including behavioral consulting, school support, social skills groups, teacher workshops, and parent education. The goal is to unlock each child’s academic potential while fostering positive attitudes and behaviors.
One of the standout programs developed by Vanessa is YEAS Yoga (Yoga Education for Autism Spectrum) – her own Yoga Curriculum aimed at addressing children’s needs and aiding professionals in teaching self-regulation and body awareness. Yoga has been widely recognized for its calming and centering effects on the mind, body, and spirit, making it an invaluable tool for children’s focus and emotional regulation.
In addition to YEAS Yoga, Vanessa has created The 3R Method: Redo, Rewind, & Repair – a program focused on social emotional learning through relationship building. This program provides specific tools and language to support children and educators in conflict resolution, empathy, and social skills. It is offered to school districts, where teachers and parents work together to enhance a child’s self-esteem and overall well-being.
The impact of Vanessa’s work has been recognized by various organizations and media outlets. The KFS School, under Vanessa’s leadership as the Executive Director, has been officially recognized as a Nonprofit Organization (501c3) since December 2016, serving children in San Francisco and the Bay Area Community. The school’s unique approach, including flexible seating options such as movement desks and innovative programs like the 3R Method, has gained attention and was featured as one of the Four Schools In SF That Think Outside The Box.

Additionally, Vanessa has authored several books including “Shut Up & Parent,” “How To Do Parenting With Confidence,” and “Teach With Heart, A Self-Care Journal For Teachers,” which provide practical guidance for parents and educators alike.
Reflecting on her journey, Vanessa Kahlon acknowledges the challenges she faced, including starting a business without prior business knowledge and the importance of asking for help. She emphasizes the need for parents to trust their instincts and have open and tough conversations with their children. Vanessa’s personal experiences have shaped her wisdom, and she encourages emerging leaders to stay open to new opportunities, maintain a positive attitude, and continue learning and growing.
