Tera is the author of the hot new book, Seeds of Learning: A Cognitive Processing Model for Speech, Language, Literacy, and Executive Functioning. Her book offers a groundbreaking and holistic approach to the assessment and treatment of childhood learning disabilities. This revolutionary method assembles the puzzle pieces of learning, connecting the dots from the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and speech language therapy to provide a comprehensive process for understanding and assisting children whose executive functions are not operating optimally. Here in the Seeds of Learning community, she goes into more detail about the ideas in her book and helps members integrate them into their practices and lives.
From years of clinical experience and research analysis as well as hands-on experience in her practice, Tera has developed a simple therapy methodology for addressing executive functioning.
Tera is excited to present and teach her method through the Seeds of Learning Community. The community presents opportunities to practice Tera's method and learn directly from her. Membership includes:
Here's what members have to say:
"Being a part of Tera's community has been far and away the most impactful continuing education opportunity I have ever experienced.

Learning in this community has made me an exponentially more effective therapist in a short amount of time.
"Also, office hours are fun, casual and low pressure as well as extremely powerful learning opportunities.

"Joining Tera's Mighty Network and reading her book, has been the best investment that I have made for myself, both as a mom and as a clinician. I have been a SLP for 10 years and this has transformed the way I conduct evaluations, write reports/goals, and run my therapy sessions. It has changed the way I see my students and how I am able to truly meet their needs. can now meet them where they are, which is what I thought I had been doing for all these years.
"This school year has been especially challenging, but joining Tera's Mighty Network has gotten me through it with a new set of skills to bring to the table. Using visualizing, planning and navigating reflexive questioning have all been game changers in my therapy room. The group of people on the zooms are truly amazing. I've only been able to attend a couple of the live zooms, but watch all the replays and feel like I know this remarkable group of SLPs, teachers, psychologists, and moms! Having so many different backgrounds in one place to share ideas and learn in a no-judgment environment is priceless! I truly love being part of this community."
-Megan Eide, MS, CCC-SLP
"I have learned more in these past few months of membership in the community than I have learned in the 15 years of searching for the appropriate therapy for my child. It has been my Eureka moment - "I found it!" I've learned how important EF is to speech, especially pragmatics, scaffolding his therapy, and the importance of child-centered planning. It's been life-altering therapy for my son and myself."
-Cathy Cuellar, parent
"I just joined [Seeds of Learning] a couple months ago so still working my way through it all! And I've got to tell you, it really is GREAT! It's the first thing in a while that's really excited me about the field!"
"I've never been So captivated, empowered, impassioned, validated, or energized by any other single training in my career. I can not recommend Tera's community, resources, or trainings enough."
