The ABCs of Academic Success is presented by an educator with considerable knowledge and many years of broad experience in the field. Writing as a former superintendent of schools, I strongly suggest that anyone who has a child with "learning issues" will benefit from the information presented in this informational webinar. As a child-parent advocate and author, Dana Stahl is a sought after expert in the field of learning issues and how to overcome them.

This course assists parents in understanding their child’s learning issues, provides the necessary language to discuss these difficulties, and support them in working cooperatively with schools to ensure the best results for their child. Parents will find this an essential tool and resource, and will refer to it frequently.

In the course, The ABC’s of Academic Success, Stahl masterfully integrates cutting edge theory and research, with years of professional experience, with her rich, insightful and compelling vision for enhancing the lives of children and adolescents with learning issues, by providing a springboard, which enables teachers and parents to easily locate, recognize and further pinpoint areas of concern.
As a result of the information embedded in this course, parents are able to peruse strategies for home and school and begin to learn to cultivate a common educational vocabulary that allows for special education team meetings to be more productive and better understood by parents, and prepares parents to be better able to navigate the special education maze by acquiring the knowledge to be true advocates for their children.
M.Ed. Learning Specialist
Dana’s reputation as an advocate for people struggling with learning differences and the people who love them is unparalleled in this industry, but she didn’t just rest on those laurels — she actually became an author and created an on-line course so she could share her scientifically proven, factual and easy to use info with everyone! To me that is the definition of someone who took their own childhood difficulties (which she shares about on her website, etc.), turned her challenges into successes, has helped countless individuals since, and now, through the course, The ABCs of Academic Success, will be completely unselfishly helping total strangers do the most important things they can do for their kids, such as be prepared for school accommodations meetings, advocate for one’s self or ones offspring, and learn why schools do what they do.

My name is Dana Stahl and I’ve been a learning specialist for over 35 years.
I more than understand your desire and need to help your child reach their full academic, social and emotional potential.
As a child, I experienced having learning disabilities in school, ( I was diagnosed as dyslexic) so I more than empathize the challenges and questions you may have about your child.
As a student with dyslexia I learned first-hand the obstacles facing students with any type of special needs as well as the frustration parents encountered because they had no information on how to bridge the gap between home and school.
What’s more, educators were often frustrated too because they did not have the tools they needed to support students with learning challenges.
So I entered the field of education to change this and make a difference. As an educational diagnostician and learning specialist for over 35 years, I work with families to help them to fully understand the results and interpretations of formal evaluations.
My work has been featured in media such as CNN, and in hundreds of parenting journals as well as on radio and television.
I work with children on developing their academic skill set and preparing them for their next educational journey. With an in-depth background in learning disabilities, I provide a wide array of academic recommendations and interventions to parents and professionals. As an educational consultant, my practice, Educational Alternatives, LLC, focuses on educational advocacy advice and school placements.
My course, The ABCs of Academic Success incorporates effective teaching strategies for parents to work with their children. Gone are the days where parents are unaware of how to help their children with homework, and understand why they are experiencing these challenges. This course guides parents in a step by step process that lets them understand the behaviors they observe in their children and what they can do to help!
The ABCs of Academic Success captures how parents and professionals can partner together to help children feel and be successful. I have designed this course to come up with solutions to creating a positive dialogue between the home and the school. There are samples letters on how to ask for help, where to seek professional support, and specific guidance how to effectively assist and advocate for your children.
As an person with a learning disability, a learning specialist who works with children, and an educational consultant who works with parents providing advice and advocacy, I am confident that the information you will learn from The ABCs of Academic Success will help you support and effectively advocate for your children allowing them to reach their full potential.
I look forward to speaking with you in the private, FREE 15 minute consultation at the end of this course.
We can talk about your child and address and questions you may have on zoom, skype, phone or email.
I’ll be with you every step of the way through the course, and it is through this team approach that together, we can help your child with learning issues feel and be successful, and delight in their academic success!
