One of the greatest gifts of using the learning strengths assessment in counseling our students and families is that it brings a high degree of clarity which enables our clients to totally understand themselves and their family members. Martin & Carolyn Forte, Excellence In Education Academy
As an elementary school teacher in Ontario, Canada with nearly two decades of experience, I am always looking for better, more effective ways help to raise the self-awareness of my students when it comes to their own personal learning styles. I’ve now found it–the Self-Portrait™ Power Traits Assessment. The past two years I have used it with my grade 4 classes and LOVE it! It is easy to administer, the results are informative, and best of all the kids and their parents gain valuable insights into how to help themselves better meet with success. Thank you LearningSuccess™ Institute! Rob Stringer BA, BEd, CPC, 4th grade teacher
It has been five years since we began using the Self-Portrait™ assessment for our staff and for our students. It is obviously a great tool for teachers to use to better understand their students and to personalize instruction accordingly. We have also found that students have enjoyed learning more about themselves and their classmates so that they can take more personal responsibility for their learning and collaborate with their fellow students. JT Lyonette, CEO, Summit Management Consulting (for Landmark Academy Charter School)
After many years of using the Self-Portrait™ assessment with our parents, students, and staff, I still get the same wonderful feeling when I see the results. It opens up a whole new world for them. They understand themselves and each other on a different level and learn to appreciate and make the most of their strengths. It also serves as a tool for our Educational Facilitators and learning center teachers to understand their audience and support student learning plans in a meaningful way. Parents who use it after putting it off have one thing in common to say, “ I wish I would have done this sooner.

This has opened my eyes to how my son learns. No more yelling at him to settle down and sit. He needs to move and not have quiet, the total opposite of me lol. I now offer options of standing and having music playing. I think this will totally make our home schooling journey a much more enjoyable one. I will often refer to the results… Tami G, Homeschool Buyer’s Co-op Member
As a learning specialist working with home school and independent study families over the last 6 years, I have found my work with using the Self-Portrait™ assessment invaluable. My experience has been that it gives both the parents and the learners a powerful tool to create an exciting and engaging educational learning plan. The wealth of information contained in the results and handbooks are empowering for students, while also giving them strategies for success. I love to see my learners light up when they realize how smart they are in so many different ways. I can’t think of a more important gift that we can give our young people than to help them discover who they are and nurture their unique gifts that they have to offer the world.

Once our son took the Self-Portrait™ assessment at his school, our lives changed. The results gave us all insight into how his brilliance would serve him in “real life” and reinforced that these qualities should be nurtured, not punished. Rather than being angry with him for not doing well in school, his father gained a better understanding of how to support him. Additionally, his dad also got better insights into his own dispositions and talents. After our son took the assessment, the dynamic of our family changed for the better. It is as if the assessment gave us permission to embrace our son for his talents, rather than criticize him for not conforming. And most importantly, he felt SO MUCH BETTER about himself. Vicky Rathje, parent, Camarillo, CA
What a difference when I work with him (9-year-old son) in his learning strengths. Delight and Motivation!

I found that I am a print learner and my daughter is a picture learner. I had been looking at curriculum from my learning perspective and not my daughter’s. I scratched my plans and started over. The first thing I noticed was there weren’t a lot of products out there geared for picture learners so I ended up tweaking what I bought to fit my daughter. For example, she would dictate to me her writing assignments instead of writing them herself or draw a picture instead of writing (this saved us untold agony). Understanding how my daughter learns has really helped me to be a better teacher. When she resists something I immediately stop and look to see if I am teaching to her learning strengths. I tweak things and then we go on. I have not experienced the tears that I have heard and read about from other homeschoolers. I know it’s because I am teaching the way she learns. Learning comes easy that way.
