A strategy-packed online training program for dedicated parents ready to unlock their children’s learning abilities.
Parents, let’s connect with your wise and wonderful future self for just a moment.
You’ve already learned how to tap into your struggling learner’s full capabilities. (No, really. Stick with me now.)
Homework battles are a thing of the past.
So are your battles with the schools for effective intervention.
Your child starts excelling in class (or homeschool) instead of falling further behind.
You no longer watch helplessly as your child’s self-confidence slips away.
You no longer feel a knot in the pit of your stomach whenever you think about your child’s future.
That confident, capable learner of yours is finally in the driver’s seat.
And yes, all of the above is possible.
Want to know what your current self actually DID to get you there?
Introducing: How to Grow a Learner
In this program you learn to uncover what is really holding your child back.
How to identify what’s at the root of your child’s learning challenges (beneath the academics)
How to measure your child’s current capabilities
Which specific goals to reach for (and when)
How to implement easy, step-by-step strategies that strengthen your child’s learning abilities
Who am I?
My name is Cherice and I help parents reach the root of children’s learning difficulties.
Many moons ago I worked with Dr. Joan Smith, whose clinical program successfully helped students of all ages overcome learning difficulties and the effects of brain trauma.
As the beneficiary of all of that uncommon knowledge I’ve had the privilege of
training students to learn with ease and confidence,
training teachers and student-teachers techniques that truly work,
and helping families experience new futures full of possibilities.
NOW I’d like that powerful training to reach the hands of parents directly.
So what’s with the bald head? Not to worry. It’s just an unfortunate flare of alopecia, a mostly harmless autoimmune condition. If you can look past all of that…
How to Grow a Learner teaches you to identify the exact skills that your child needs to strengthen AND how to tailor powerful, effective strategies to strengthen them.
So let’s take a look at how we do that.
This 7-week online training course includes 6 weekly modules, delivered one week at a time. Plus, during an implementation week in the middle, we give all of that new knowledge a bit of time to sink in. No new information that week, just practice.
Each module includes approximately an hour to an hour and a half worth of lessons to watch. Plus, you create your custom training sessions with your child by adding one new 5-10 minute strategy every week.
By the end of the course you have a completely tailored, completely flexible 50-60 minute training session to implement at home. We discuss frequency of training later, but you can choose to work with your child anywhere between 1 and 5 times per week.
That’s when the magic really kicks into high gear.
The ultimate goal? Your child becomes an independent learner.
This typically takes about a year or so. That depends, of course, on your child’s starting point, and how often and how consistently you work together.
Profoundly dyslexic students may require longer. Students who only need to develop a few new cognitive connections require far less time.
Incidentally, your dyslexic child will not lose her dyslexic gifts. She’ll simply be able to read and learn in a way that supports the unique way that she sees the world.
This first module helps ensure that your success with this program is inevitable. Becoming your child’s own personal learning guide does NOT need to be complicated or overwhelming.
By the end of Module 1 you know how to organize your training sessions with your child, how to tailor the program to fit your child’s specific needs, and how to support your child in a pressure free sort of way. You also learn what measurement looks like at every phase.
Ultimately Module 1 sets the groundwork for you so that you feel as supported as possible, and ready to dive in.
Attention issues often go hand in hand with learning challenges. Whether your child has difficulty concentrating or not, here you learn how attention challenges show up differently for different students. You discover multiple strategies for improving attention, and how to choose which one is best for your child.
Understanding what’s at the root of your child’s reading difficulties helps you become laser focused on the most effective intervention strategies.
By the end of Module 3 you know exactly how to implement one of my all-time favorite multi-sensory reading techniques. Bonus effect: this technique has a fun way of removing the pressure of reading, and much of the resistance your child might be experiencing.
Plus, you know exactly which additional reading strategy to work on first, second, and third so that your child eventually becomes a confident, independent reader, and one who actually enjoys reading.
Don’t worry if you’ve never heard the term “auditory processing” before. You’ll be a pro before you know it!
Identifying and strengthening auditory processing challenges can be a game-changer for some students. You learn how to identify your child’s unique auditory processing challenges, if any, and what exactly to do about them. You help your child master only the most critical auditory skill first. (Yep, there’s more than one.) I teach you HOW to know what that is and how to proceed after mastery.
Module 5 is much like Module 4, only this time we focus on visual processing abilities. You walk away knowing how to identify which visual skill that your child needs help with the most, so that visual skills support rather than interfere with learning. Again, you strengthen only that one visual skill until mastery before introducing any others.
Students with learning difficulties often struggle with critical thinking, with keeping themselves and their schoolwork organized, remembering not just to complete assignments but to turn them in after finishing, and other areas related to planning and goal setting.
You might be surprised by some of the learning gaps that you uncover throughout Module 6. The work that you and your child do together to strengthen time awareness, spatial awareness, and logic and reasoning fills those gaps and leads to more independent thinking and creative problem solving.
Just like with many of the other strategies throughout this program, the ones in Module 6 are very hands-on. Not only that, but I encourage quite a bit of game playing here. So, while that’s always fun for the kids, you get to have fun right alongside them.
To accommodate multiple learning styles of parents who take this course, each module includes written transcripts that you can use to either read along or to refer back to when needed.
Every good educator tends to have quite a few tools that help make learning fun and effective. That’s no different here. Expect to make a small investment in additional materials that I recommend (i.e. colored wooden blocks, timer and/or stop watch, crayons, etc.).
The priciest items on your Materials List (up to $80) may or may not be necessary. It all depends on your child’s unique learning needs and what you already own. You discover what’s really needed when you watch each lesson. I don’t want to surprise you later with these potential extra materials costs, so please factor that in when making your decision.
You have access to the program for as long as it exists. That means you’re able to take your time, and wait until your child is ready before you learn to implement the more advanced strategies in each module. You DO NOT need to consume all of the information at once, unless, of course, that’s the way that you prefer to learn. Either option is available to you.
Also available to you is access to the course’s Q & A section. Do you have a question about your child, about some of your perplexing observations, about any of the strategies? Need some clarification on anything? Submit your question to the course’s Q & A section and I answer it as quickly as possible. I promise you there are no silly questions, but if you do happen to be a little shy about asking, you can always send me a private email.
In addition to the 6 modules, the 3-4 lessons per module, with all of the customizable strategies included, the written transcripts, the recommended materials list, the lifetime access, and the Q & A section (where you get to ask me anything) throughout this course you also receive downloadable, printable, toolbox bonuses in nearly every lesson.
These are designed to help you implement all of the new strategies you learn about. Some are easy reference guides. Many of them are there to help make the strategies as easy to implement as possible. Simply follow the step by step instructions and you never have to wonder, “Am I doing this right?” You’ve got this.

Not only that but YOU get to feel an immense sense of pride and accomplishment by being the parent who makes all of that happen.

Module 1 of How to Grow a Learner officially begins November 4, 2019.
If you’re still deciding if this is a good fit for you or not, let me answer a few questions.
No. If you have formal testing already, great. You might find the report(s) helpful. For this program it is not required.
Well, you don’t. I can only offer the tools that I have found to be the most effective, time and time again. I cannot promise that every strategy will help every child.
One of my graduates, Dawn, had some reservations as well. Here’s what she said:
The lightbulb moment that was absolutely amazing was the spelling. I was a little bit skeptical thinking, “How is this going to work?” So I did it religiously and followed step by step, still thinking, “I don’t know whether this is going to work.” I was absolutely blown away. I could’ve cried. I think so could he. He was so amazed with himself. Before he couldn’t spell anything and suddenly he’s getting 10/10!
I believe that having learning challenges of your own puts you at a distinct ADVANTAGE when helping your child. You understand the struggle more than most.
That said, I recommend that you delegate a couple of the strategies to another parent or friend. That’s ONLY IF you find them to be too challenging.
Likely you’ll discover that they’re not as difficult as you suspect. How to Grow a Learner offers the perfect opportunity to improve your own skills as you help improve your child’s.
Here’s some extra encouragement from Laura Jo:
I liked that everything was explained very clearly; often reiterated. Every time I had a question and worried that I had missed something, you restated it in other words and it made perfect sense. I felt like I learned a ton, not just about my child, but about my own learning skills. Watching you act it out on video and explaining what to look for was a huge help.
Absolutely! In fact, I would love for this training to find its way to every educator out there!
Do be aware, however, that in this training I speak directly to parents.
I also assume that you are able to work one-on-one with your student, or in small groups at the very least. If that’s not the case, I find that most educators are very creative when it comes to adapting strategies to serve the entire classroom.
From Valerie, a Special Education Teacher:
My student is much more confident and was just ecstatic. “Hey, I was able to pay attention to this!” The classroom teacher also noticed she is working harder and is more focused. I will absolutely be using the strategies with nearly all of my students.
While I do plan to offer How to Grow a Learner sometime in 2020, I don’t make any promises that the price will be this low again.
This course is designed for you to learn at your own pace. If you sign up today, you can begin Module 1 any time that you’re ready (once it goes live, of course).
Even if this is a busy time of year for you and your family, please ask yourself this question: “Is this the year that your child finally experiences success in school, a new sense of pride and accomplishment, a new belief that the sky really is the limit? OR, will those hidden feelings of defeat and inadequacy grow even stronger?” Don’t leave it up to chance. The sooner you take action, the sooner your child’s victories start rolling in.
How to Grow a Learner is NOT a great fit for you if:
Your child already attends a school geared specifically for students with learning differences (Dyslexia and other “Learning Disabilities”), AND is making good progress.
Your child already receives quality instruction from a private educational therapist (whom you plan to continue hiring long term) AND is making good progress.
Your child’s IQ is 85 or below. (Sorry folks, these strategies are proven for students with learning disabilities and challenges, not intellectual disabilities.)
How to Grow a Learner is perfect for you if:
Your struggling learner is 7-12 years old (or thereabouts).
You’re ready to roll up your sleeves and implement powerful, effective strategies to unlock your child’s learning abilities.
You recognize that lasting progress doesn’t happen overnight, which means that you’re not afraid of the long term commitment.
You’re ready to see the light in your child’s eyes again, and watch those capabilities and confidence soar!
