For Judy's Presentations
"Judy, you give the best talks of anyone I have
heard. You are so insightful, and it all makes sense when you say it.
You were terrific!"
Parent of children with ADD
"Your sensitive handling of the material and
questions was wonderful for teachers to hear. I think people felt that
their questions were carefully and thoughtfully dealt with and you were able
to provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere for dialogue! You are such an
engaging leader, and your pool of cases and information is so rich."
State Association of Independent Schools
"Thank you so much for the excellent workshop.
The participants really got a lot out of it. You were so well
organized and offered such excellent rapport with the audience."
President of Local Chapter of Learning Disabilities Assoc.
"I heard from many participants that they found
your session on Students with AD/HD in the Classroom incredibly valuable.
I know that all those in attendance left it with something tangible to take
back to their schools."
Director of Programs
"Excellent, knowledgeable presenter with a great
sense of humor. So much PRACTICAL information."
"I feel better prepared to handle my class in
general and my suspected ADD students who are still too young to diagnose."
"Excellent presentation of real "nuts and bolts"
information that is clear and immediately useful."
For direct work with students, parents and teachers:
"My kids have done incredibly well in middle
school--I'm quite sure that the time spent in your study skills classes was
a key ingredient to their success!"
Parent of two middle school students
Judy Stern is an amazing resource. I could pick
her brain all day."
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."
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
Claire R. , Parent
"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."
"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."
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!
