Learning Strengths Consultation

“Educators are finally recognizing that unique learning needs are the norm rather than the exception.”
Warger & Pugach, Educational Leadership, February 1996

The goal of the Learning Strengths Consultation is to help your children:
   • develop their natural Talents and Interests
   • unlock potentials in academic areas
   • develop confidence and problem solving skills
   • discover their direction / mission in life
   • prepare for a productive adulthood

The consultation includes:

   • Self-Portrait™ Learning Strengths Assessment -
     for child & parents
   • Private consultation, 1 1/2 to 2 hours
     (clients within driving distance meet at the office,
      long distance clients by phone or video call)
   • School Year Plan and Recommendations

At the appointment you will:

   • Learn about your child's best ways of processing information
   • Discover techniques that work best for his/her learning
   • Get help choosing appropriate curriculum & materials

Teaching methods and materials are carefully chosen to best fit the student’s needs. If your child attends a traditional school, you will be given ideas to work with your child at home and information that you can share with your child’s teachers. If you are homeschooling, this program will allow your child to fulfill his / her grade requirements in a way that is appropriate to his / her learning needs, by choosing from a wide selection of workbooks, textbooks, computer programs, videos, audio tapes, and hands-on learning techniques and materials.

We have been so incredibly thrilled with the whole learning assessment. It is the most wonderful thing. It was a fantastic experience. It’s going to make a world of difference for my daughter. I can’t tell you how much struggle and frustration we have had for years – this is the answer.


Mariaemma is a brilliant educator!! She saved my kids' hearts and spirits and gave them gifts of self-trust and learning through their own styles! They are flourishing now as they move into adulthood.
