Meet Dr JoQueta Handy

My Passion:

Igniting the Brilliant Learner in Your Child

Dr. Joqueta is an expert in ASD and special education

Through many years of practice, Dr. Joqueta Handy, Ph.D., CCC-SLP has helped countless children, teachers, practitioners, and parents to identify and research the specific needs of children K-12 who have educational struggles, using an extensive toolbox that includes optimizing diet, balancing brain chemistry, as well as by applying her learning strategies.

The CEO and Chief Visionary of Brilliant Learning, Dr. Joqueta is also the mastermind behind the revolutionary learning strategy known as the Children’s Opportunity for Brilliance (COB) model. As an integrative medicine doctor and pediatric speech language pathologist, Dr. Joqueta takes a holistic approach to education that focuses on improving the quality of life for your child, and providing you as the parents, teachers, and practitioners with hope for your child to maximize their full potential.

As a forerunner in the holistic, multi sensory approach for students with special needs since the early 1990s, Dr. Joqueta realized the ineffectiveness of current special education and the lack of resources in this area and has dedicated her career to understanding how children with learning disabilities and learning challenges respond to various teaching strategies, with a strong focus on those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Her research has led her to partner with several biotech companies in order to tap into how children with autism and its related learning challenges can be taught effectively, and the resulting COB model has shown a 70% improvement in children’s learning after just sixteen hours of one-one-one instruction.

Brilliant Learning Online was created by Dr. Joqueta with a heart and desire to reach a wider audience across the nation with an approach to education that has proven to be effective time and time again. The course, which is designed to be accessible for your busy lifestyle, aims to ignite and cultivate the value of the Brilliant Learner in you and your child or student by providing an inclusive online community of support, empowerment, mentorship, and encouragement. You can access our extensive video library that features lessons on the learning or teaching strategies, nutrition, brain chemistry, and parent/teacher mindsets and attitudes, with more content being added each day.

Learning Strategies:
The COB Model

Brilliant Learning’s COB model, created by Dr. Joqueta, acknowledges each child as an individual with each family having different needs, and is firmly rooted in the philosophy that every child is a Brilliant Learner, regardless of any learning disability or challenge that has been identified or diagnosed.  The model focuses on tapping into what motivates and engages each student, and the specific learning strengths of each child, and provides them with the feedback and interactions that are necessary to reinforce learning and build upon their foundation. Using this model, children have shown a 70% improvement in learning after just sixteen hours of application.

Parent Education
and Support

We believe one of the most important keys to your child’s learning is your mental and physical health as a parent. That’s why our program begins with you. We will walk with you as you learn to take care of your own health and emotional needs, assess and shift your mindsets and attitudes about your child and their potential, and receive encouragement and empowerment through our online community.

Parent Testimonials

“I will always remember the day that I watched, with tears in my eyes, our son actually READING! We hoped that this day would come, but we could have never imagined it would come so soon! There is absolutely no program like this anywhere else, I have exhaustedly searched high and low for a program that could help our son without success. We feel that now our son has been finally given a fair chance to succeed in life. I truly don’t know what we would have done without the COB model program, our son’s future depends on it!”

“Your training and techniques are like nothing we have ever seen or experienced anywhere else… Jacob has gone from being able to remember maybe 15 out of his 30 spelling words to accomplishing several 100% tests on all 30 words, which is amazing!
Finally, there is a way of teaching and training that has given him the tools to succeed. Jacob’s self esteem and level of confidence has gone up immensely. It is so exciting to experience.”
