What is an OptiKode?

OptiKodes help struggling students succeed  

OptiKodes offers parents of struggling students a reliable formula for school success. Everyone has a core learning system - or OptiKode Learning Style - which explains how we naturally learn best. Once identified, your child’s OptiKode shows what learning tools and strategies they need to get on track and thrive. It is a simple system that takes less than 2 hours to get started with.


Each person’s OptiKode chart has five modalities that are used in a ranked order. The three outer colors have the highest number rankings and are considered the 3 DOMINANT ways a person learns. The two inner colors have lower numbers and are the 2 DORMANT ways a person learns.  So much is revealed in our Dominant and Dormant modalities - why we are gifted in some things and challenged in others.

All struggling learners have a predictable OptiKode which puts them at risk in traditional school settings. The key is to use their 3 DOMINANT modalities to teach to their natural strengths and learning abilities.

The Five Modalities are:

  • Seeing Dominant -  Being SIGHT SMART: learning through images, visual processing, graphics and design
  • Hearing Dominant - Being SOUND SMART: learning through hearing, verbal processing, music and dialogue
  • Moving Dominant - Being BODY SMART: learning through hands-on, concrete and physical experience
  • Reading Dominant - Being BOOK SMART: learning through reading, writing and linguistic experience
  • Thinking Dominant - Being NUMBER SMART: learning through analytical, mathematical, and systematic thought

How an OptiKode Learning Style Evaluation Opens up the Road to Success

Every child is a natural born learner, but traditional teaching methods fail to ignite the abilities of the bright , nontraditional learners. Their natural learning abilities take off though when an understanding of their OptiKode is brought on board.

An OptiKode Learning Styles Evaluation with Kimberley Blackburn starts the process of rebooting your child’s whole framework for learning. The evaluation will completely clarify what learning methods they need and will put an end to your worry and frustration.

It is an enormous relief for parents when they understand why their bright child has been struggling and what can be done to get them on track.  In less than 2 hours, an Evaluation will provide you with an easy to implement program that can be started at home immediately. Often students living in the Bay Area also meet with Kimberley for a period of time to accelerate their progress in one-on-one sessions.

Schools are not set up to assess why children struggle, and outside testing is a very expensive first step, often costing upwards of $5,000. An OptiKodes Learning Styles Evaluation is an affordable and thorough first step and will get your child moving towards success.

Along with in-person consultations in the San Francisco Bay Area, Kimberley routinely meets with families over Skype.  This one meeting is guaranteed to give you the answers you have been looking for and change your family and child’s life.
