Meet Cheri

The lump swelled up in my throat as she asked the class to get out a sheet of paper for our spelling test. Just another thing to add to my failure as a student: poor spelling, hand pain, and essay writing.

33% of the population struggle with a writing disability.

The longer handwriting is a challenge, the longer it will take to remediate it.

I believe that if you desire a classroom of students who read and write proficiently, understanding dysgraphia is essential to student success.

Dysgraphia is a problem with written expression, for years I had no idea how to apply it to the classroom. Today, through my framework, I transform regular education and learning support teachers, plus occupational therapists and parents into Word Changers.

What our clients say

Shawna Steinbrecher, Occupational Therapist

“I found that it helped me be mindful in educating others and getting information to educators that they might not know about Specific Leaning Disability, and Dysgraphia. I felt that the course had good literature to help with educating others. The book was valuable.”

Hillary Davis, Occupational Therapist

“The roll-out of information was incredible. The way you organized this course contributed to the ease in which I could process and apply the information. I feel considerably more prepared to explain dysgraphia to other team members and support students.”

Thanks to Kelly Ripa for boldly sharing her family’s story,

dysgraphia is finally getting some much overdue attention.

She made this comment in People Magazine, February 4, 2021, in an article written by Ashley Boucher:  “Mark and I were FaceTiming the other night … Mark got very emotional, and very choked up, because he said, ‘You know, I never thought he would be able to go to college.’ Because he was profoundly dyslexic and dysgraphic.”
