Judy Stern is an amazing resource. I could pick her brain all day."
K.S., 
Third grade teacher, Rockville, Maryland

"Judy's knowledge, expertise and well thought-out advice is truly exceptional. She is focused and evaluative and is able to pinpoint areas of difficulty easily from observations and teachers' information. Judy takes the "what can we do to help" approach rather than the "that's just the way the child is" approach." 
Amy K.
Middle School Teacher, Washington, D.C.

“I felt good about the direction you gave us when we were trying to figure out what our child needed and what we should do. You really helped us form a plan and sort through all the information we were hearing.” 
Claire R. , Parent
Gaithersburg, MD 

"Judy is the consummate “resource person”, accessible to students, teachers and parents alike.  Students are receptive to her positive and affirming approach, and their many successes are evidence of her skills at diagnosing their learning difficulties and then addressing them with planful and effective interventions.  In like manner, Judy is a wonderfully collaborative colleague who helps teachers identify what has or has not worked successfully in their classrooms, and supports them as they implement additional strategies to help scaffold students’ learning.  Parents find her approachable and pragmatic.  Her calm and kind manner, tinged with good humor, is supportive to parents in even the most difficult discussions."
Lynn A.
School Counselor

"As a parent, Judy was instrumental in helping us identify my son’s learning needs, and detailing and organizing the support he needed to be successful in a difficult dual language program.  I credit his success in high school to her intervention and support.  She is hardworking, dedicated and self-motivated.  She has excellent relationships with all of her colleagues and the families she works with.  Judy is a true professional in every sense."
O.R.
Parent

Judy,
 I just want to let you know how invaluable you have been this year to me. You helped me to understand and target C.'s academic issues and, in turn, articulate them in an organized clear manner to his parents.  Your knowledge in helping children with learning needs is so apparent in every conversation I have with you, and you have taught me so much about this area of teaching/learning.  Also, thank you so much for the support you have shown me in regard to C’s situation.  When I have been discouraged you have made effort to make sure meetings take place and things move forward.  THANK YOU SO MUCH for your help this year.  You are amazing! 

J.B., teacher
