American Academy to Host “Learn How to Learn…for Children and Teens with Learning Differences.”
American Academy, a program within American Heritage Schools, is pleased to host “Learn How to Learn…for Children and Teens with Learning Differences,” a virtual event via Zoom on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. This event is part of American Academy’s monthly program, “Experts in Learning Differences” speaker series. Hosted by Alexandra Rollins, admissions director of the American Academy Program, the expert speakers for the November event are Mira Halpert, M.Ed., founder and president of 3D Learner, and Mark Halpert, MBA, RMT, director of 3D Learner.
Kids who learn differently often learn best when they see and experience information. Too often, educational testing focuses on what is wrong with the child and does not fully encompass their strengths. During this virtual event, Mira and Mark Halpert of 3D Learner will explain how to identify the child who learns differently, the importance of addressing his or her challenges, and the benefits of strength-based parenting and education. Viewers will also learn their strengths and challenges as caregivers, useful tips on parenting, and the value of collaboration with their child’s teachers and school.
Mira is a champion for kids who learn differently. Her father was a great musical conductor who was able to bring together a whole orchestra; Mira sees herself as an ‘educational conductor’ who brings together parents, teachers, schools, and outside professionals to help maximize children’s strengths, identify and address their weaknesses, and unleash their potential. Mira has a degree in Developmental Psychology and a master’s degree in education from the University of Michigan.
“When our daughter was told, ‘You are not college material,’ we asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said, ‘The teacher I never had!!!’ It was at that moment I became a mom on a mission determined to help bright kids who learn differently learn how THEY learn best,” said Mira Halpert, founder and president of 3D Learner. “My passion is helping kids learn how to learn the way they learn and providing them with the opportunity to be all they can be.”
Mark co-authored with his wife, Mira, a best-selling book titled, “The 3D Learner: Transform Stress to Outrageous Success for Your Child.” He is the director of 3D Learner as well as a math coach and a parent advocate focused on helping children succeed by third grade. Mark also works with his son, Michael, to help student-athletes improve their academic and athletic skills and earn college scholarships, and he champions the effort to improve students’ SAT and ACT scores with a focus on teaching the way they learn best.
