PARENTS & TEACHERS: Learn how to make life easier for students who struggle with homework, motivation, underachievement, organization, grades, focus, study skills, time management, emotions, overwhelm & resistance. I'm Seth Perler and I help complicated, misunderstood, outside-the-box learners turn it around in a baffling system so they can launch a successful future. My blog gives you game-changing answers in a sea of misguided educational fluff.
SUBSCRIBE ABOVE to get my Sunday update & Student Success Toolkit to learn exactly how I empower "atypical" learners of any age. It's free. No games, no spam, just help.
MALADAPTIVE PATTERNS: There's no instruction book for how to help your child navigate school. Traditional interventions often fail because they don't get to the root of a child's problems and they're often based on misinformation. Consequently, your child's maladaptive patterns get worse each year, leading to pervasive difficulties transitioning into adulthood. That's the opposite of what education should do, and the sooner you get tools, the better.
HOW TO HELP A STUDENT? Parents often feel helpless, watching their child drown in school, as they spin their wheels with cookie cutter approaches that don't cut it. There's no time for bs, life isn't a dress rehearsal. Parents are desperate for tools that are 1) practical, and 2) that recognize your child's unique needs. Subscribe to learn.
“My husband and I want to express our sincere admiration and appreciation for all you did for our son. He has gained immense self-confidence in his ability to “do” school on his own recognizance from working with you. He slowly took over his school responsibilities, learned to advocate for himself and to even enjoy classes that he formerly thought were a “waste of time”. He told us in his senior year that no class is a waste as there is nothing to be lost from learning new information even if it doesn’t seem directly important for your particular interests at that time. He also said, “How do I know what information I’ll need in the future? I might as well learn as much as I can now, while it is being offered.” We are so impressed with how far he has developed in maturity and outlook on school. He just started college. He is just starting and greatly enjoying the challenge. We wanted to share his high school transcript with you as it clearly shows your incredible influence on his scholastic achievement.” — Parent of new college student
“Ohhhh my, what you’ve put together is absolutely amazing! You went above and beyond with details enabling each family to read, follow and execute! It truly is easy to follow and you’ve stated things extremely clearly. You’ve been such a blessing to our hearts by guiding and teaching us how best to work with our son. He really likes you and has been keeping up with all the video assignments. Thank you for what you DO! Thank you for who YOU ARE!!” — Michelle
“I just had to share what he said to me today, “Mom, as crazy as this sounds for school, I think I really like it. I’m passing all my classes. The teachers ask me what I need and they help me. I have a solid crew of friends to hang out with at lunch. I even have plans with one after school tomorrow. It feels weird for it being school after hating it forever.” I think he kept waiting for the same old negative shit to happen at school and was keeping up his guard, and now I think he is starting to let that guard down… slowly, cautiously, and I think it is even surprising him. And Sunday, he said, “I am so happy Seth is back.” THANK YOU!” — Justine, mom of a hs freshman
“Thank you for creating conversation and providing strategies for out of the box learners and devoting your time to this work.” — Melanie, Mom of 15yo boy in LA
“Seth, I LOVE your site and use many of your resources in my classroom.” — Beth C., Middle School Special Education Teacher
“I love your blog- it is just so applicable and helpful in our lives.” – Middle school mom
“You were able to verbalize and explain how my son is and why he is struggling in school. Thank you for what you do, its very much needed!!” – 3rd grade mom
